Duckie's teacher and I have been talking and have decided that it may be beneficial for Duckie to have a 504 plan in place when she leaves elementary school at the end of next school year due to her sensory processing disorder diagnosis. She will have this teacher next year (she's looping) so we won't have to "break in" another teacher next year. I'm looking for some suggested accommodations for a sensory defensive student. We already are keeping her seated at the periphery of the classroom and trying to have her seated as far away from the extremely disruptive student in class. We're also getting a note from the private Occupational Therapist (OT) requesting that Duckie or the teacher have the option of Duckie sitting at the allergy table on stressful days due to how loud and crowded the cafeteria is. The principal has said he's fine with it as long as Duckie's lunch is nut-free and he has a note. Her teacher is more concerned about middle school when there are several teachers that they may not be willing to work with her needs informally. Duckie's biggest problems are getting stressed in a loud environment, she's tactile defensive and gets upset by incidental touch (bumping, accidentally brushing up against her) so she needs a little extra space and general organization (she gets overwhelmed). I'll also be asking the school & private Occupational Therapist (OT)'s for input but I'd also like ideas from experienced parents. Thank you!
