My Students

I am an Occupational Therapist working with incredibly, wonderfully, unique teenagers with the diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Though each student's goals are specific to them, the end goal is to increase their independence in the school and community environments. Most of my students are seen individually though some are also seen in groups of 2. We are practicing fine motor strengthening to increase ability to manage clothing fasteners and participate in handwriting activities. With some students, the focus is much more sensory based, working to decrease behaviors and increase attention/alertness to achieve their goals. We also practice filling out job applications, exploring prevocational skills, and simple meal preparation activities. Some students enjoy participating in seasonal activities encompassing visual scanning, following multistep directives, and fine motor skills.

My Project

This project will help me to give my students an exciting and creative spring in Occupational Therapy. The gardening kits and supplies will be used with my students who are working on increasing independence with life skills involving following multistep tasks. The Froggy feeding fun game will be used for students working on turn taking skills and fine motor strengthening. The keyrings, friendship bracelet loom, and thread will be for my students who are working on increasing peer interaction, fine motor skills, and attention to task. These supplies not only introduce them to spring time colors and environments creating bracelets for their classmates and loved ones using visual board.
