My Students

I currently work in a wonderful class with students on the autism spectrum. My students have a hard time using and processing language.

In my room, we are able to work on individual academic standards while focusing on building language and social skills.

Students are able to work in small groups and focus on their individual needs.

The world can be a challenging place for students with special needs. I want my classroom to feel like a safe place where students can learn and explore.

My Project

Small fidgets and tools to allow our bodies to move while remaining in our seats are necessities in the Special Day Classroom. By allowing my students to keep their hands busy or by giving them a tool to move their feet, they are able to stay focused for longer periods of time which increases the progress we can make towards our academic and social goals. The putty and desk mazes are items that are discreet and yet they can calm and help a student remain in a general education class for extended periods of time, which gives them greater opportunities with their peers. The desk rollers and kick straps allow students to move their feet while remaining at the tables. For my students that like to move, these tools give them the opportunity to move and work at the same time.
