Complying to the norm for eight hours a day is difficult for anyone, let alone a child living with a disability such as autism.
Rossmore Community Preschool program manager Sheryl Amann said a new sensory room would be introduced at the school to allow all children “to just be who they are without any pressure”.
The school was among more than 200 recipients awarded funding as part of the Commonwealth Bank community grants program.
The $10,000 will be put to use during the September school holidays.
“We aren’t building a new room but modifying an existing one,” Ms Amann said.
“Contractors will need to come in and make structural changes so we can install a special cuddle swing.”
The room will feature padded floors and walls, crash mats, a hammock style swing and individual egg shaped chairs.
