I support about 45 of the most amazing kids in the world in our center-based autism program. These students light up any classroom they go into and are so eager to learn. I once had a professor in college say to us, "If you find a job you're passionate about, you'll never work a day in your life." That quote holds especially true with the population of students I work with. They really make "work" a great experience each and every day. I truly believe that with the correct support and materials, we can provide a positive learning environment for our students. I am looking to provide my students with autism the tools they need and deserve to be successful members of society both in and out of the classroom.
It is our job to make sure we are providing every possible support to ensure academic success for all students, including providing the necessary tools to address the specific needs of our center-based autism program.
As we are currently learning in person, we are in need of some basic office supplies for our classroom. The resources would be classroom supplies for all of our students to enjoy and share together. We will label the baggies and have supplies for each student so they have their own set of markers, pens, etc.
Our center based Autism students would greatly benefit from having individual and personalized baggies to store their supplies so they're not touching others' belongings and potentially spreading germs.
My students look forward to the hands on crafts and activities as they add more excitement to their learning experience. It also provides a much needed sensory break during the day. To make it more engaging for the students, we are creating ways to have more hands on activities that can still be done while having their own set of supplies to abide by COVID protocols.
