Students with Autism suffer, in varying degrees, with difficulties in social interaction, verbal/nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors and sensory sensitivities. I wish to furnish the space with vibrant, colorful textures and items that will not only feed the sensory needs of my students, but provide them with a comfortable space where learning can happen naturally. The requested items will provide an alternative learning environment more conducive to their specific cognitive, social and sensory needs. The array of textured carpeting can offer students a place to lie down and read or relax. The chairs we have currently are hard and cause discomfort for the students. The discomfort causes distraction and difficulty staying focused. The bean bags, and ottomans covered in different materials give the students a variety of places to sit while learning. The motion of the rocking chair can offer sensory relief for students in overload. Storage bins can help keep student belongings and manipulatives neat and orderly. We use the binders for progress monitoring and communication with parents. The triangle shaped pencils help students with dexterity issues improve writing skills. Whiteboards are an essential part of our everyday learning. We use them for guided math lessons and pre-writing activities. With all the staffing changes over the past 8 years, much of the supplies and materials have left with the teachers, and the room is a space filled with miscellaneous odds and ends that have been discarded by others and reclaimed by me. The chance to give the students some items that will remain in the classroom even if the teacher leaves will offer a bit of consistency.
