My Students

My students are incredible people, deep thinkers, and sensory masters. I am a high school SPED teacher with a class of eight wonderful individuals with autism. My students are eager to learn life skills that will help them achieve a greater quality of life as they mature into adults.

Recently, our classroom acquired materials to build a small kitchen in our room.

It's been a wonderful addition, and students are learning much about food prep! However, it's a very messy experience, and we definitely need to practice cleaning and maintaining the kitchen.

My Project

Materials listed here will help ensure that the Ability Kitchen is clean and safe to cook and eat in. We will be able to teach the class how to clean the kitchen, utensils, and how to prepare foods safely.

It's very important to hit home that preparing food is a process that includes sharing, safety, responsibility, and fun!

Dish soap and cleaners will help us spot-clean plates, bowls, cups, and cutlery that will replace those one-use party flatware that ends up being expensive in the long run. We want a permanent kitchen that operates just like the one at home. The ultimate goal is to encourage students to be more involved with their family life, and to take more ownership of skills learned.
