My Students

I am the adapted physical education teacher in the district. I work with students with disabilities from K-age 22. The students range from cognitive deficits to severe autism, Down syndrome, spina bifida, TBI, and anything else that can hinder a student in physical education. I have no budget so all of the equipment I use is already in place at the school and not necessarily the right fit or bought by myself with the hope of getting reimbursed (or not even trying sometimes).

All of my students love PE even they are just getting social stimulation.

Many of my students, particularly those in wheelchairs, like being around the other students and enjoy experiencing the fun they are having together.

Having proper adapted equipment will benefit all students, not just those with disabilities, and enhance their physical education experience. My students will be able to participate more in class and in turn be more successful. This may also increase their social interactions and may cause some lasting friendships.

My Project

These materials will help my students learn how to move better and will help them become more successful in physical education. The balance beam will help them to be able to negotiate stairs better and be able to play outside in uneven terrain. The other materials will help with sensory stimulation and give them some enjoyment in class.

My students will enjoy the touch and feel of the balls and discs, the movement of the ribbons, and the challenge of the balance beams.

They will also be able to have a "home" to go to with the color spots. Thanks!
