BINGHAMTON (WBNG) -- One area school is making sure students are getting the education they need inside and outside of the classroom.

On Thursday, Binghamton High School students installed a sensory path in two hallways at B.H.S. for its Pre-K class.

The path includes prompts for students to jump, spin, make animal noises, sing the alphabet and more.

Binghamton City School District Speech Pathologist Michele Tramsue said the path will help students work on their occupational therapy skills, sensory integration and more.

“A sensory pathway helps the kids regulate their bodies,” Tramsue said. “So, when their bodies are overstimulated they can go out and do some jumping, hopping, follow the directions, and it helps their bodies regulate to be ready to learn.”

The movements from the path are also effective in helping students who experience frustration, anger and sensory overloads during learning.
