My Students

I have been blessed with the ability to be a special education teacher in the field of Autism Spectrum Disorders. My students cover all three middle school grade levels (6-8) and have a variety of needs. To be perfectly honest, my students are just the best. When I'm at work I miss my personal children, but my students at school completely have my heart as well. Every single day we laugh and enjoy each other as a class. The Autism Spectrum Disorders program at my school is pretty large, but we are the tightest family. We just fit together.

We are getting an increasingly high number of students who have a difficult time focusing and staying still/seated while in the classroom, and we are doing our best to help support those students.

We have implemented a few sensory supports (for example, wiggle seats) and a few flexible seating options (for example, yoga ball seats), but I know there is more that can be done. Trying to make sure my classroom is accommodating and comfortable for my students is always a goal, but I know there is more that can be done.

My Project

Due to the increased need for my classroom to be accommodating for my students with Autism we need to be able to implement more flexible seating on a daily basis. Right now we have implemented a few flexible seating options and sensory supports, but we need to be able to add more support in order to reach the maximum number of students.

We have seen a positive impact so far with the supports we have implemented, and we know if we could support more of the students in a bigger variety of ways we would see an even bigger impact.

Flexibility is KEY for our students to be successful in school. Our kids have to have an effective and less distracting way to get their wiggles out! I believe this will help without a doubt.
