Keeping up with trends

For special education students, undergraduate research can have two important purposes. First, it provides the important experience of conducting a research project — an immensely enriching undergraduate opportunity.

Undergraduate research is a way to get started on that career objective with the help and guidance of faculty.

Their goal was to develop a sensory room for children to use, and considerations were given to light, sound and sensory stimuli that may be overwhelming for some visitors. This thoughtfully curated space provides a calming break for any children who need some time on their own.
