LeeAnn Harrell, the school’s principal, was surprised.
“They came to me and approached me and asked if I had a need,” she said. “And, I do. I have a new resource teacher. She will have a self-contained room. She mentioned she wanted to buy alternative seating and sensory items for her classroom.”
“This is one of the greatest gifts I think we could've ever gotten,” Harrell said. “It's going to allow these children to have a better education to have a better way of learning and I thank them so much.”
“A lot of times autistic children have sensory issues,” she said. “We want to purchase some things that will help them with those issues. It will also help them with physical and occupational therapy. With those who are fidgety, you have all these things you can buy for desks, bands, and things like that.”
