I am a first year teacher for 10 general education students and seven students with special needs. I have several students who are on the Autism spectrum. Typically, individuals with Autism have many sensory needs. Their senses are heightened, meaning everything is louder, brighter, and more overwhelming. Similar to how we need to take a break if we have been on sensory overload, individuals with Autism need breaks frequently. We might crawl into our bed or plop down on the couch. Those with Autistic tendencies might enjoy spinning gears, rolling on a ball, or even building something just by themselves. Allowing my students to have access to these items helps them cope with the overwhelming sensations they are having, thus allowing them to learn and experience more when they are in the classroom.
