My Students

Our class is comprised of 8 amazing students with autism across three grade levels who learn in many different ways. Our students come from different wards from within DC, not just from the surrounding neighborhood. Our class is a self-contained classroom, which means that the majority of each students' learning takes place within our room. Many of our students also receive some instruction in the general education setting and are able to interact and socialize with their typically developing peers throughout the day.

Autism is a developmental disability that affects the way our students interact and communicate with others.

Autism is a spectrum disorder and our students' skills and abilities fall all over the range of the spectrum. We have students who are approaching grade level academically as well as students who are not yet communicating verbally. Each of our students is unique and has their own strengths, gifts, and support needs. All of our students need support in the areas of communication, behavior, social interaction, and daily living skills.

My Project

Our classroom has a wide range of educational needs and requires a wide range of instructional materials to meet those needs. Our students are each learning on different levels and need different sets of materials made for them to meet their individual needs.

Our class needs various odds and ends to fill gaps in our room.

We are requesting items such as: adapted scissors for use by students who need fine motor support while cutting, velcro for use in preparing visuals for students, a weighted lap pad to support student focus and attention, and storage bins for organizing supplies and instructional materials. All of the materials requested will work towards adapting materials to fit each individual student in my classroom. In order for different activities to be accessible to all, different adaptations need to be made for each student. Having each of these materials will work towards that goal (ex. adapted scissors will allow students who would otherwise be unable to use regular scissors to complete an art project independently).

Each of these items on their own may not seem like they make a huge impact on our classroom, but they will certainly help our classroom run more smoothly and create a seamless learning environment for our students.
