My Students

My students are the ten colors of the Autism rainbow, each their own hue of personality. Some of them are nonverbal and are working on using sign language to communicate their wants and needs. The students come from different backgrounds and have different strengths, but they all are bright, energetic, and curious. Even on the challenging days, my students bring joy to me and my staff with their loving, youthful, and independent spirits.

My students are dynamic and sensitive.

Giving these students sensory input is essential to their classroom experience. My staff and I use sensory integration items to help the students be calm, focused, and comfortable so they can be ready to learn. We utilize therapeutic brushes, weighted blankets and vests, wiggle cushions, and sensory toys to aid students. It is wonderful to see a student smile and relax when they receive the special sensory attention they need.

My intention is to build an enriched environment to given my students a variety of play and sensory experiences. Donors Choose can help with that!

My Project

This comfy corner builds on both our listening center and cozy area. The comfy corner listening center allows us to display our new audio books with headphones while being comfortable. This will tie together our cozy book area and our audiobook display. Children will be able to sit in a comfy corner, listen and look at books.

Our children love books.

And they love sitting on their comfy couch and pillows looking at their favorite books. With this new addition, our kids can have a cozy audiobook experience. Additionally, the peapod and shaggy rug will make our cozy area more cozy. The rug will cover the hard laminate flooring and the peapod will give certain kids that snug, tucked in feeling they crave. This project will help round out our cozy area and house our audiobook materials nicely.
