Sensory Pathway at Tom McCall Elementary School
ESD Occupational Therapist Taryn DuBose collaborated with school staff to install sensory pathways in some of the schools she serves in Bend and Redmond. Sensory pathways are a structured, fun and engaging way for students to work on skills such as: motor planning, bilateral coordination, balance, spatial awareness and breathing/calming strategies. The pathways also serve as a fun way to get proprioceptive (our sense related to body position) and vestibular (our sense related to position against gravity and acceleration) sensory input which is thought to impact attention and focus. Additionally, the pathways can serve as a way of students getting extra energy out or getting more movement in when needed as well as acting as a tool for students to navigate challenging emotions. Pathways can also be a tool for integrating movement with learning such as placing sight words or math facts on parts of the pathway for students to read or solve along the way. Integrating movement with learning can facilitate retention and be fun at the same time.
