We all experience dysregulation—can you think of a time when your body felt like it needed a deep breath, a stretch, or to slow down?
For many students who learn differently, it’s easier to become dysregulated or to arrive at school that way. Students who are emotionally dysregulated may refuse to do work or sit still. They also might express their frustration verbally or physically.
Centennial School District partnered with The Shadow Project to provide better support to students when they are stressed, anxious or dysregulated.
Since October, The Shadow Project installed five SuperSensory Spaces at Parklane, Powell Butte, Meadows, Oliver and Patrick Lynch schools. Two more installations are planned at Pleasant Valley and Butler Creek in the coming months.
