Autism is Just a Part of Who We Are!

Help me give my students a way to get out their wiggles (especially on rainy days)!

My Students

I learn from my students every day! Some of my students may not verbally talk, but you can learn so much from them! All of my students are on the Autism Spectrum. They have a varying range of abilities. They also have a varying range of challenges.

My students have the desire to be accepted like any other student.

My students love to participate in all activities as their general education peers. I want to help foster participation and inclusion.

My Project

I am starting up a brand new program at a school district this year! My district has been great about getting me a lot of items for my classroom and students, but I just want to add to what my students will have access to.

Rainy days are the most difficult for my students.

They NEED (more than typical students) to get their wiggles when they can't get outside. Besides their schedule being thrown off, there is no way from them to get the sensory input they require to learn and focus. By giving them motor outlets, they will be able to get some energy out inside the classroom.
