My Students

My students are a hardworking, kind, eager to learn group of 6-8th graders who have moderate-severe disabilities. These students prove everyday that they are capable of achieving anything they set their mind to. The students at our school come from a variety of different cultural and economic backgrounds.

As a school community we work hard to build an environment that is inclusive and accessible to all students.

Through the addition of these materials we are striving to give our students with disabilities access to a space that they will feel comfortable in and best supports them in achieving their goals.

My Project

This year, our school was able to provide a space where our students with moderate to severe disabilities can receive their instruction related to both academic and functional skills. In this environment, students work on building their independence in the areas of daily living, job training, social skills, and traditional academics.

Creating an environment that feels welcoming and accessible to all students and their specific needs is essential to their success.

This space gives our students a calming and comfortable environment to help them self regulate throughout the school day. With these materials we will be able to provide students with break time activities, sensory/regulation support, and functional/social skill building tasks.
