Philip J Rock Center and School

Project Title
Sensory Room
Assisting Sick and Abused Children
Chicago, IL

The Philip J Rock Center provides services to individuals who are deaf-blind. The residential school offers an intensive, comprehensive education program for 3-21 year olds. The Center also provides a range of services in schools, medical settings, early intervention centers and homes statewide. This grant supports the development and outfitting of a new Sensory room at the PJR Center School. Sensory Rooms are needed to allow students time to calm down while exposing them to different textures, sounds and smells. The end result is regulated students who are available for learning.
