The Ross-Pike ESD received a grant this year to purchase 15 pairs of specialized headphones and the entire Modulate Therapeutic Listening album. 7 preschool classrooms implemented the program with a total of 10 students. Educators also diligently implemented a specific sensory diet plan with each student daily as part of the program. Results indicated improved attention span, active engagement with peers, improved bowel/bladder control, improved impulse control/self-regulation, decreased episodes of frustration and increased verbalizations. Thank you to all of our staff that worked so hard in implementing this program!
