About My Students
My students never ceased to amaze me. Tammie, Jaren, Daniel and Chelsea love science, arts and crafts, they want to enhance their skills. They also want to continue to expand their pre-vocational abilities by learning to operate different machinery. My students are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders and are non-verbal. Hands on activities provides them unlimited opportunities to express their individuality, abilities, creativity and provides sensory integration and stimulation. They are ready for Phase Two of their Artistic Inspiration project.
The project is important to the school and community by providing the students the opportunity to grow and develop in a data based learning environment. Students are encouraged to become productive citizens as they transition to adulthood through student strength perspectives. This project will help support the skills they need to become fully empowered. Art provides opportunities for self- expression, creativity as well as teamwork and collaboration. These skills are needed to be successful whether it be post-secondary education, or the world of work. Accomplishing this project takes teamwork, trust and commitment from all stakeholders.
Our school Center-Based educational facility that has created a continuum of services for students with disabilities to ensure students have access to an age-appropriate learning environment. The transition process to post secondary adulthood is best experienced through real life training, and real world experiences. Students are prepared with the necessary skills that will increase their quality of life.
In Their Own Words
We will learn how to design, size, produce and select visuals representations of our ideas for T-Shirts and jewelry. . We will mix colors, beads, follow patterns, select fabrics, use machinery and engage is safety activities. We will expand our previous learning by producing digital photos and master the use of transfer paper on an ink jet printer with the support of our Teacher and classroom Paraprofessionals.
With the 3D doodler we can draw vertically draw horizontally. and literally lift our ideas off the page. We all have fine motor deficits, the 3D doodler will allow precision crafting and make art is easier for everyone of us. Its a win-win tool
Students are prepared with the necessary skills that will increase their quality of life, leading to self empowerment to their fullest potential. They will also learn how to promote and market their items.
T-shirt and jewelry making activities and operating various machinery will require my students to engage in teamwork, and problem solving, while learning daily living skills.
