My Students

I have a preschool autism class. My school is a Title I school with 99% of students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. My students are amazing! Each is only three or four years old but brilliant in his own right. One is very vocal and receives time in the general education classroom. Another has gone from saying three words at the beginning of the year to speaking in complete sentences. Others are learning to use the Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) to express their needs. I love the way my students work together in the play center and I am proud of the way they have welcomed new students into our class!

My Project

The Kennedy Krieger Institute offers an annual autism conference. I have attended the last two years and participated in valuable sessions on toilet training strategies, early identification, and intervention, as well as the impact of diet on individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

This project will cover the cost of lodging for one night of the conference.

Attending the 18th Annual Autism Conference will provide me with rare professional development focused specifically on helping children with autism. This years' conference topics include managing tantrums and supporting families. This school year my school received communication devices for students. As a result, the workshop I am most interested in attending is "Using Technology to Enhance Communication and Learning."
