My Students

Have you ever had a conversation with a child who has autism? They are simply amazing. Their minds are incredible and usually their intelligence level is high. However, being a teacher who teaches children with autism, I have found that my students need more assistance with their speech.

My students are all boys.

They are delightful,creative, inquisitive, and intelligent. They attend a school that is in a very low-income area, however, they always come to school with a smile on their face. They love to learn:-). We are from California - the sunshine state:-). However, my boys go home to poverty-stricken homes every day where no books are present. I would like to provide as many opportunities for them to learn to read as possible.

My Project

I am requesting that a listening center be donated to my classroom. My students are struggling in learning how to read due to their functioning level of autism. They need more visuals, listening opportunities, and a center where they learn to read during workshop time. Please help these students as they learn how to not only be in a world that misunderstands them, but also learn how to be overcomers. My students would love to learn to read. Will you help us?

This donation will help my students in incredible ways.

I believe that some of my students will learn to speak due to their opportunities for being presented with a listening center. Thankyou for helping us!
