Emily Hastings from the Dixie Public School came to speak about Special Education dealing with children with autism. She is currently heading a project to build a sensory room, which is basically a technology room involving sensory stimulation to calm down students.

The main items needed in a sensory room would be bubble tubes, fiber optic strands, vibration equipment chairs, blacklight and blacklight toys.

A sensory room design has been prepared and to furnish everyting in the design would cost over $20,000. This however is just ideal and not everything on the design needs to be implemented. So far Emily and her friends has raised $4,000 through various fundraisers. She hopes to add fibre optic strands as the next piece of equipment for the room.
