My Students

My students are in kindergarten through fifth grade with mild to severe disabilities, including Autism, Down Syndrome, learning disabilities, and communication disorders.

"The best way to interrupt the cycle of poverty is to support children's physical, socio-emotional, and educational needs." - Cheryl Suliteanu

Help my students to successfully participate in and enjoy school! Our elementary school is in a high-poverty area, and many students come to school hungry. Not all of my students are able to participate fully in their general education setting without extra support. These materials will help my students learn how to be successful, independent, and happy in life.

My Project

My students need supplies to help them be more independent in the classroom setting. The Can Do Print handwriting workbook will help my students learn how to form their letters so their writing can be legible. The Ferby pencils are helpful for my younger students to help them develop the correct grip. The pencil weights will be helpful for my students who have a light handwriting. The Breathe Like a Bear book will help with self-regulation skills to help my students calm their upsets and continue with their work. The Worry Hand Print will be helpful to help my students focus on the present and let go of their worries.
