Wellsville: Students Love “Sensory Area” in OT Room!


The BOCES Occupational Therapy Room at Wellsville Elementary School has a new 'Sensory Area.'  According to CA BOCES Occupational Therapist Michele Pettenati, “The children just love it!  The lights are switch activated, there are musical toys, light up toys and toys that vibrate!  This is very calming for most children.  In the OT Room, we also have a ‘Wobble Seat’ for movement while at the table, a steamroller and a swing.”

Mrs. Pettenati added, “Many of the items were donated by Friends of the OT program.” Mrs. Pettenati, COTA/L, has been an employee for BOCES for 31 years.
