My Students

I am the proud teacher of ten 3-5 year old children with special needs. All of my children are on the Autism spectrum. They range from moderate to severe and are in a self-contained class. Our Preschool class is located at a public elementary school. My children come from all different socio-economic backgrounds and ethnicities. Due to Austim being more prevalent in boys, I have 8 boys and 2 girls.

The beauty of this program is being witness to the tremendous gains the children make in this very specialized visually engineered program based on the principles of ABA.

For some it is the moment they speak their first word or play with another child, for others completing a work task without adult support and for others learning to use the toilet or waving hello/goodbye.

What I love most about my program is the ability to watch the children grow from year to year, as many enter the program at age three and remain with me until they are 5 and ready to transition out of Pre-school.

My Project

We are in need of an additional iPad for our classroom. The students are expected to use the digital curriculum called TeachTown, an evidence-based curriculum that addresses the academic, cognitive, and social emotional challenges faced by students with developmental delays, intellectual disability (ID), and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

In addition to the iPad, we are need of a wagon that will hold multiple students at one time.

Often, the children will "earn" a wagon ride in the fresh air as a reinforcer and have a difficult time waiting their turn. With a larger wagon, more students will be able to enjoy their reward throughout the school day.
