My students attend an inner-city school. All of the students have been diagnosed with Autism and most have been also diagnosed with comorbid conditions such as Intellectual Impairment and Communication Impairments.
These children love learning and enthusiastically attend school each day.
Even though learning is harder for them than their typically developing peers, they never give up. They benefit from multi-sensory, hands-on opportunities for learning with opportunities for repetition and practicing their independent skills.
In effort to provide them with repeated practice, a laminator, card stock, velcro and book binding are required to make materials that can be used again and again.
The products I have selected will help my students with Autism. In school we use many visuals, offer a consistent predictable schedule, use concrete language, directly teach social skills and, most importantly treat each students as an individual. In order to do this, and make the grade level curriculum accessible, we need supplies. Students thrive on individualized folder work. Laminating the pages and using velcro cuts down on copy machine usage and allows students to practice and maintain skills. Once skills are mastered, students can complete folder work independently, which helps students feel self-reliant and successful. Cut and paste activities strengthen fine motor skills and are very motivating. These students love to learn, let's help them.
