Hooray! This project is fully funded
My middle school class serves students with autism spectrum disorders. Some of my students have fairly severe disorders, requiring hands-on tasks. For example, a student may need to sort small items by color or shape, or may need to learn to package three items together. Students need clearly designed tasks, which make it simple to see how to start and finish a task. We have created several tasks for our students, but there are never enough! We need a larger selection of activities for these students, to increase their independence and time-on-task. Keeping the students engaged decreases their frustration and their disruptive behaviors. Unfortunately, these tasks take several hours to build and only minutes for the students to complete! A kit of pre-made tasks would give our classroom a jump-start we desperately need. These tasks would be used daily during individual work time in our classroom. The hours of learning which would be provided is at least 180 hours! One on-line vendor makes a kit of 16 hands-on tasks which would be perfect for our class.
