“A Toolbox for Every Classroom” is a program that will give teachers updated physical tools and strategies to teach their students how to regulate their bodies to remain available for learning throughout the course of their school day. This project enhances every student’s ability to access the curriculum, by helping them maintain an optimal level of learning. The goal of the program is to teach students the importance of self regulation and taking breaks to maintain a healthy balance of wellness. Classroom teachers, instructional aides, occupational therapists, behavior specialists, and school psychologists will work together to instruct, model, and incorporate tools and strategies within whole group learning and individual times for needed breaks. NEF is funding comprehensive kits for each classroom.
