My Students

In a public elementary school, these special education students attend a 3rd-5th grade social communication classroom. All of the students have communication needs, and most have high-functioning autism. One student is considered talented and gifted, some are at grade-level, and others struggle academically. These are kind and caring students, with the possibility of making significant contributions to society as they grow and mature. They are hard workers!

What my students need is a rug to make the calm room more relaxing!

My Project

Everyone needs some help sometimes remaining calm. Students with autism benefit from a quiet space where they can use the strategies they have learned to stay calm, when school gets challenging. Taking a break to calm down builds skills which will help them throughout their lives. Taking a break is not a punishment. It is helpful to have a happy, cozy location to which students want to go and where they feel safe. A rug can add coziness to an otherwise institutional feeling room. A rug can create the feeling of a welcoming space, and can contribute to a student's ability to relax.
