My Students

My students are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder and come from high poverty/ high-risk neighborhoods. While there are some students who are verbal, there are others that are nonverbal and depend on picture symbols to communicate. Although they have multiple disabilities, my students have their own unique abilities that are being discovered each day.

To help them succeed and lead independent lives, my students benefit from multi-sensory activities.

My students are best supported through a highly structured environment with kinesthetic and visual supports. Supporting their needs promote communication and interaction amongst peers and adults.

My Project

My students do not have the basic needs at home. They all come from areas where basic items are not prevalent. Teaching them the skills to make basic hygienic needs will not only benefit them now, but will help them make their own things for the future.

Some of my students do not have blazers for graduation.

Four of them are in the 5th grade and need basic essentials to help them look polished for their graduation and prom. The DoTerra essential oils, baking soda, coconut oil will help them make toothpaste, laundry detergent and lip balm.

Students will need organizational materials to ensure that activities are planned out well. That is why we are requesting a rolling cart and adaptable seating, so that students can not only have fun completing these projects. They will also learn how to relax.

We intend on taking our students to practice utensil skills, which is why we hope to teach them how to use a fork and spoon. We want to ensure that students know how to eat with proper manners so that they can be prepared when they leave our school.
