This term, Heidi, our resident Occupational Therapist, gave the OT students from Belgium a project – To construct a house for our Twinkle class at Die Sterreweg, from cardboard boxes. The idea is to create a nice safe corner where the autistic children in this class can take sensory breaks when they need them.
The youth helped us Paper Mache the whole structure to make it sturdy. They also painted the fun Takalani Sesame and Mickey Mouse designs on the sides. The Twinkle Class decorated the roof themselves with stamp shapes.
The students took real initiative and added a special sensory wall and color film windows. Combined with glitter bottles and fairy lights, this is the perfect little Snoezelen hideout. The children love it already!
Children’s first introduction to the completed project – Practicing the skill of turn taking
