My Students

My students are very unique! They are the 1 in 59 children diagnosed with autism. Autism in and of itself can be a very hard existence when you don't have the appropriate tools to navigate through this confusing world. Many of my students are non-verbal, behaviorally challenged, and crave sensory stimulation. I like to think of the autism in my students not as a disability but as a different ability. Regardless, they require learning opportunities that are unique to them alone.

My Project

Autism is known as a spectrum disorder because the cognitive, functioning, and communication level of each individual ranges from low to high in impact. The one consistent characteristic observed across the entire spectrum is the lack of social skills. For children, this lack of social skills becomes most apparent during play times.

As a teacher of students with autism, it is my duty to teach play skills in the most relevant manner possible.

To accomplish this task, items such as the sand/water table, crawling tunnels, and rolling chairs can stimulate greater amounts of interest. It is also my hope to include typical peers as the process continues.
