My class is a severely handicapped class. My students are combination of Intellectual Disability, Autism, Visual Impaired and wheel chair bound.
Severely handicapped, special education students rely on visual icons everyday.
This is what they follow for their schedule and means of communication. With this, I will be using a lot of laminating sheets, Velcro, colored papers, colored markers, manipulative toys and a laminating machine throughout the year. Colored papers and construction papers are used for their daily art activities and weekly projects.
Students will be making art and crafts activities in class every week. This is part of their fine motor skills building and socialization as this is a group and individual work. Students showcase their ideas and interest through art and crafts.
The students' works will be displayed on the bulletin board where everybody can view it.
This helps the students become proud of their work.
A portfolio of the students' work will be displayed in the classroom every month and to be compiled and shown to their parents every term. This will improve the students' confidence and motivation to do more and make it even better.
