Sensory Break or Pathway

What is it?

A specific set of movements designed to increase neurochemicals like serotonin and dopamine in the brain so that sensory students can focus before they have to work. It includes vestibular and proprioceptive movements (e.g., toe touches followed by wall push-ups).

Where is it found?

Most likely in the hallway, a separate sensory gym, or a spot within the classroom.

How do I use it?

Use it as a regularly scheduled break during the day to help improve focus and the quality of student work.
