My students are in panorama city and every student is special and unique in their own way. They all have special needs. I have class with 10 students with autism in an an economically disadvantaged community. They love school, but sometimes they can’t access the environment because of their special needs. I’m trying to get 4 cube chairs to help them sit in circle time. We also needs LEGOs for the kids that can’t run around at recess. This will make their experience in school easier.
They can sit up and join circle time without falling over. The students with autism feel more comfortable and join carpet time when using the cube chair, but we only have one in the classroom and students have hard time accepting this and have tantrums over the one chair and then can not function during class time. They feel secure with the chair. The students who can’t run around during recess enjoy LEGO’s, but over time we have lost many of them and students have a hard time going through them and they get lost. These things would make class time more successful and enjoyable.
