Everyone Can Cook! Cooking with Special Learners.

My students need appliances, like a blender, a convection oven and an electric skillet, for our kitchenette to learn essential living skills such as kitchen safety, food preparation, and independent cooking.

My Students

You can't do that! Many people believe that students with intellectual disabilities and Autism CAN'T do certain tasks. In our classroom it's all about strengths and abilities. With proper training our students can learn essential skills needed to cook independently and safely.

My classroom consists of 12 amazing special learners with varying levels of ability.

We attend a 5th and 6th grade intermediate school in Alabama. We have a great life skills classroom, however we don't have the needed appliances and kitchen supplies to teach culinary/cooking skills.

My Project

Our schedule consists of 2 life skill periods per day. This gives us the needed time to focus on daily living skills such as cooking. We have a kitchenette area with a microwave and toaster oven. We need the listed items to allow us to expand our teaching abilities and culinary areas. Our job is to prepare these students to become as independent as possible. This has to be done by "hand's on" training in the kitchen.

We need your help.

I know if you had the chance to meet my kids you would fall in love with them just as I have. I want to be able to offer them all they deserve! The kitchen appliances will allow me to help them achieve self-worth, confidence, and independence. I appreciate any consideration and any size donation.
