New Sensory Rooms for Alberta School

New Sensory Rooms for Alberta School

The Vivint Smart Home Team

Vivint Smart Home recently continued their partnership with the Nicholas Sheran Community School in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Vivint Smart Home employees first volunteered at the school last summer when they helped with a variety of renovation, cleaning, and organizing projects. Volunteers returned to the school in the fall to help with larger much-needed renovation projects.

In just two and a half days, over sixty Vivint Smart Home volunteers were able to transform a special needs classroom and sensory room. Volunteers built new furniture, painted walls, remodeled the special needs kitchen, and added new sensory equipment and high-tech special needs devices to the classrooms.
Volunteers also spent time with the children, accompanying students on field trips during the project. The morning Vivint Smart Home revealed the renovations, volunteers explored the new environment with the students, talking, playing, and sharing in their excitement.

And that’s not all. Volunteers also built a sensory bedroom for the son of a school employee who has autism. This new room and the sensory items will help him develop skills such as hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. The impact Vivint Smart Home volunteers have had on these students and families and their experience in dealing with autism is immeasurable.
