Help me give my students easel pads and an easel stand. Individuals with Autism often have visual challenges. The easel pads and easel stand allows me to differentiate my instruction with a 2-D effect.
Our school is located in the northeast section of the Bronx, NY. The scholars, as I like to call them, absolutely love learning. They are bright and energetic. In our classroom, we view the world from a lens of possibilities, not limitations. This is important because each Scholar is a student with Autism.
The way in which each of the scholars learns varies, but that keeps me on my toes as their teacher.
As a result, we create a learning environment that meets each student the way they learn best. I am fortunate to be their teacher. My students inspire me each and every day.
Differentiation is key for students with intellectual disabilities. Writing on a whiteboard doesn't provide my students the ability to see clearly what is written. The reason is all of my students have visual challenges (due to having Autism) and are unable to fully distinguish what is written on a whiteboard. I prefer to use easel pads for my lessons because they provide a 2-D effect versus 1-D found with a whiteboard. An added benefit to using easel pads is the ability to post my lessons around the room for continuous learning. Students can take the concepts learned from past lessons and apply to new lessons.
