A Robstown elementary school just put the finishing touches on a new sensory room. The room will benefit not only students in the district but also others who have autism or dyslexia.

The new sensory room at Robert Driscoll Elementary has bubble columns, a sensory wall and innovative technology to improve students’ motor and communication skills.

This is all possible thanks to a $1 million grant the Texas Education Agency awarded Robstown ISD.

Robstown is a pilot district for the effort and they’ll be sharing the money with nine other area school districts.

Today, we’ll be speaking to a teacher as well as a mother of one of the students who will be using this room.

We’ll have the full story this evening on KRIS 6 News.
