Program: A Quiet Space in a Noisy World – Transforming the Sensory Experience for Diverse Learners

The average day for a student can be chaotic. There's sensory input from all angles: bells ringing, lockers slamming, accidental shoulder bumps, and more. This may be mildly irritating for neurotypical students but can be debilitating for students with developmental disabilities. For diverse learners at Lane Tech College Prep in Chicago, a Sensory Wellbeing Hub provides tactile opportunities for students to reset throughout the day. This session will describe our research and process to design for diverse learners, the solution installed at Lane Tech, and preliminary findings from a research study conducted following the installation of the Hub.
