My students with Autism often have limited verbal skills and a difficult time communicating with others. Therefore, it becomes challenging to even assess at what level my students are functioning, particularly because I have few hands-on and engaging materials. During the next few months, I will be assessing my students, whose ages range from 8 to 11, and I am requesting colorful and tactile manipulation materials that will help me measure whether or not my students are able to understand and comprehend emerging literacy and math skills. For these assessments, which will also serve as learning tools throughout the year, I believe my students would benefit from: a category sorting box, sort and match reading games, pattern sets, early language concept activities (i.e. object matching and comparing sizes), learning to count activities and early math activity charts. These activities would be used by all of the students in the room throughout the year. I have seven students, and I work in a Special Education school in the Bronx. My students typically enjoy fun and interactive activities while both their parents and myself like when they are also learning!
