My Students

I work in an ungraded program for autistic kids, ranging in ages from 5-7. I teach in a high-needs, low income community. Through out this school year I have noticed my children's' interest and love in art but I have very little materials to help them

My children are non-verbal, early learners, and some function at an 18-month-old age level.

My children have trouble communicating their everyday needs or wants. They have short attention spans and need help staying on task. My children have difficulty expressing themselves through language.

My Project

The materials for these projects are essential art supplies necessary for the upcoming summer program and school year. The glue will be used on hundreds of potential art projects and are essential and used every day. Paint markers will help children decorate projects and develop fine motor skills. The paint and collage box will allow my children to create hundreds of art projects.

Seeing my childrens' faces lighting up during art time is more then anyone can ask for.

They have the ability to focus and love participating in the hands on activities. With your help, I can continue to have an art activity every day and keep their smiles on their beautiful faces.
