QUINCY — The Chaddock Children’s Foundation recently received a donation from the Rotary Club of Quincy to be used to buy essential sensory tools and supplies for the Chaddock School.

Jared Ransom, manager of support services at the Chaddock School, highlighted the significant impact of this donation. In a press release, Ransom said, “Our diverse student population requires interventions tailored to their individual needs, and we believe that these supplies will play a crucial role in improving their performance and daily functioning within the school environment. By incorporating sensory tools, we aim to create a more supportive and inclusive environment conducive to academic success and positive behavioral outcomes.”

The donation will fund the purchase of items such as bean bag chairs, magnetic tile building sets, Smart LED floor lamps, wall light panels, yoga mats and various sporting equipment. These tools are designed to help regulate students’ cognitive and learning abilities, support self-regulation and emotional management, reduce incident reports and create a safer school environment.

“The Chaddock Children’s Foundation was established for the sole purpose of supporting Chaddock programs and services,” said Adam Duesterhaus, development associate for the Chaddock Children’s Foundation. “With the support of funding from the Rotary of Quincy Foundation, our students will be given additional resources to help aid them on their path to personal and academic success.”
