Planning a Sensory Path for Your Space
Are you ready to purchase a Sensory Path but don’t know where to start?
There are many things to consider when considering a Sensory Path for your school. The first hurdle is most often your budget.
How much money does your school have for a Sensory Path? Most often Sensory Paths (TM) are not soley teacher funded! So if you are a teacher and reading this, don’t think it is hopeless. Teachers should always check with your principal,… and principals should check with their superintendent for any extra funds that may be available. Every year school district scramble to use funds at the last minute becasue if they don’t use all the money allocated they could potentially lose those dollars the follwoing year. If your district doesn’t have extra money for the current fiscal year, see what you need to do to earmark some money for next year’s budget. You may be surprised what’s available!
You should also check with your PTAs. Perhaps a group of teachers could ask their classes to donate money towards a Sensory Path instead of a teacher’s gift. It is amazing what comes from creative funding opportunities.
A Sensory Path can seem like a large, upfront investment. But when you realize the benefits for ALL students (and teachers!) it quickly pays for itself.
Once you have a budget, it’s time to figure out how much space you actually have available for a Sensory Path.
The Sensory Path has multiple full package options priced at $1500 each. Those packages have been designed for full sensory integration. Any of these packages are carefully and thoughtfully designed to be a complete and true sensory experience. These Sensory Paths are designed to fill a 40 ft. by 8 ft. space, but you can stretch the path up to 100 ft. Most of the full size paths include a push wall that will require 4-6 ft. of wall space. Review each path and check with your building supervisor before making your decision.
If you have more than 100 ft. or less than 40 ft., The Sensory Path still has you covered! We also sell each item from our full size packages individually. You can add on extra items or build your own Sensory Path. If you’re worried about created a genuine Sensory Path(TM) with the proper sensory inputs, we would be more than happy to help.
