My Students

My school is made up mostly of children with autism or other special needs. In my library, I serve children from 7th to 12th grade at various points on the autism spectrum.

Reading level and social skills vary drastically across the student population making it essential for them to have a safe space in which to explore books, study and socialize with one another.

My hope is to provide them with such a place. A place to draw them in, where they can express themselves and discover new books and other media.

My Project

This simple series of books;I Got This!: A Dragon Book To Teach Kids That They Can Handle Everything or Train Your Angry Dragon: Teach Your Dragon To Be Patient helps teach readers critical life skills in an easy to read and understand format. Our students struggle with appropriate social skills and how to interact with the world around them and these books break down complex skills in a way our students understand.

This book series will help our students see how to learn the social skills they need to be successful when connecting with the world around them.

Autism can make it difficult to reach outside of one's self and we aim to provide our students with opportunities that will make it easier for them once they leave school.
