Awesomely Autistic and Aiming to Achieve!

My students need art supplies, such as glue, pipe cleaners, stamp pads, stickers and craft sticks, to assist in the development and progression of fine motor skills.

My Students

Awesome students with autism working on increasing their artistic ability and creative thinking skills. My students face many challenges with fine motor development and I want to find ways to increase these skills in fun and creative ways.

Our class is in a low socioeconomic are in North Carolina, and all of my students have characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorder.

They have deficits in fine motor development and skills. We have some wonderful boys to work with this year. My students do not typically "like" to do things with their hands that involve different textures and pressure, however these are areas that we try to develop to increase their ability to tolerate textures and broaden range of skill sets.

My Project

These craft supplies such as paint, crayons, glue, and pipe cleaners as well as the sensory balls will help meet various sensory needs during activities this year. We will use them to do crafts in the classroom that stretch them to be creative but also try to increase their tolerance for undesired activities. Hopefully engaging in these activities will allow them to develop more creative thinking skills and build tolerance for activities involving their hands which could translate to further skill development.

Arts in the schools is extremely important for all students, however states are severely cutting back budgets that support these programs.

In addition, there is little to no money for teachers to supplement these materials. I want to continually increase my student's exposure to various creative situations in the school setting and these materials will help me accomplish this goal!
