MISSOULA - The satisfaction of a job well done is an empowering feeling for Linda Burr's students at Lowell Elementary School, especially those with autism.
This week's One Class at a Time grant from Allegiance Benefit Plan Management and Montana's News Station will go toward purchasing sensory manipulatives for Linda Burr's classroom.
The games teach students how to count and also how to use their motor skills to complete the task at hand, whether it's sinking buttons or putting pegs in holes.
Burr says the manipulatives help set students up for success by peaking their interest and increasing their concentration.
