Help Children with Autism Learn to Their Greatest Potential!

Help me give my students the materials necessary to help them learn to their greatest potential! My students are hands-on learners and would benefit so much from the use of manipulatives and structured play toys.

My Students

My special education grades 2-5 classroom consists of students with various needs and skills. My students are at all different levels of their education and give 110% everyday.

Many of my students need to have access to different approaches to learning, some of which include the conventional approach, a multi-sensory approach, or a technological approach.

My students thrive the most when they are given access to multiple approaches and different materials for learning.

My students enjoy dramatic play, arts and crafts, and options for sensory play. Each of my students is very creative and unique in their own ways.

My Project

These materials will significantly help my students to learn and achieve their goals through the use of many different materials and opportunities.

With your help, my students will gain access to materials that will help them grow in both their academic and play skills.

Children with autism tend to have difficulties in both academics and play skills. With these materials, it is the hope that they are able to enjoy appropriate play with engaging materials.

These resources will give my students the opportunity to learn through different approaches that work well for their learning styles. This could be a multisensory approach or a high-tech approach. These materials will help them to grow important skills for life.
