Hamilton North School

Hamilton North School received a $4,496.50 grant to go towards the installation of two gravity chair seats at the school to aid children with sensory processing disorders.

One of the learning barriers children with sensory processing disorders such as Retts, Autism and Foetal Alcohol Syndrome face, is their sensory systems are ‘out of sync’ causing them to struggle to focus and learn in class.

The gravity chair has contoured layers of foam to give the struggling student a deep pressure squeeze, raising their self-awareness and allowing them to calm down.
