WHAT ARE SENSORY ROOMS?A therapeutic space with a variety of equipment that provides students with special needs with personalized sensory input that helps these children calm and focus themselves so they can be better prepared for learning and interacting with others. The coolest part is now these rooms are also used by any student needing a therapeutic space.” – Ride for Autism Awareness

“So many schools are struggling to keep up with the demand on special needs programs.

There are all kinds of facts and data out there on Autism numbers but we’ve personally watch our son’s special needs classrooms go from 3-5 kids to 10-15 kids over the past few years and we never thought about the impact that has on our schools financially.

When we’ve donated to these programs, we see the excitement from directors and teachers. We know donations are so greatly appreciated and used for exactly what we’ve asked them to be.

Donations are impacting these kids and kids in the future.

Autism Awareness & Acceptance will always be our first goal but if we can help our schools, teachers and kids that’s a win win!” – Shaun & Amanda Hampton, Ride for Autism Awareness
