ADA Distributes Sensory Bags to TLSC & Boys and Girls Club
On Wednesday, February 11 and Thursday, February 12, the Monticello Mayor’s Advisory Council for the ADA distributed sensory bags to the Boys & Girls Club of White County, and to all five schools in the Twin Lakes School Corporation. The sensory bags, which are for use by individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders or Sensory Processing Disorders, include items such as weighted lap pads, stretchy toys and noise-cancelling headphones to provide or reduce various types of sensory input. Funding for these sensory bags was made possible through the generosity of the Community Foundation of White County, which provided a $1,500 grant toward their purchase.
