P.S.15 unique sensory gym was featured on FOX 5 News this morning - Kerry Drew - 6:21 am
It’s a chance for kids to just be kids and learn some life changing skills along the way. This is no ordinary gym class, it’s a sensory gym at P.S. 15, which is changing the lives of children with developmental delays and behavioral disorders. Sara Baloch is an occupational therapist with the New York City Department of Education. She explains that each hands-off activity allows kids to work on movement and speech by engaging their senses. Medical research on the effectiveness of sensory rooms on children with special needs is limited, but small scale trials show that it helps children, especially those with autism. These kids are also reaching major life milestones, such as one child who was nonverbal is now speaking.
