Accidents Happen! No Big Deal! Pt. 2

My students need underwear so that when they have accidents they can change and continue on with their learning day.

My Students

I have the honor of teaching a small group of unique students. Our school is ranked as a high poverty school with 99% of our students qualifying for free or reduced price lunch. I teach what is called a Self Contained Cross Categorical Academic class of typically about 16-18 students, Kindergarten and 1st grade. The disabilities in my classroom range in severity. As you can imagine, trying to teach multiple grade levels at once can be challenging but somehow with our organized chaos, my educational aide and I make it happen. Each and every one of my students is making progress to meet their annual goals. Teaching my school has been a blessing because I know that even on the hardest days, I have little ones who love the consistency and love they get at school. Not only do I teach my students academics, but I try to push them to do their absolute best and show them that even though they may have a disability, they can do anything if they set their minds to it.

My Project

Some of my students are unable to effectively express themselves in words, this includes being able to say when they need to use the bathroom. For this reason, I find that bathroom-related problems are among the most challenging behaviors to address, since my young students, especially my students on the Autism Spectrum are rarely able to express their confusion, anxiety, or fear in words which leads to bathroom accidents.

Many of my students only have basic essentials for home and getting items such as extra clothing or in this case underwear is hard for them.

Accidents happen and when they do I would like to be able to simply have the supplies that I need to simply change my students and continue learning. I have purchased underwear on my own however I can simply not keep up anymore as there are many items I purchase on a regular basis for my classroom. Please consider supporting my simple request to have underwear available for when my students have accidents.

Thank you for your consideration.
