My Students

The students at the J.M. Autism Strand (10 classes of students ranging from Kindergarten through 8th grade) are hands-on, community learners with huge interests. We work with a wide variety of learners: from students who love making science projects, to those who are major book lovers. Our students come from all over the city of Boston. We are often indoors during the winter months, and love having a variety of projects to create, and items to play on indoors.

My Project

Our students benefit from individualized support- laminating personalized schedules, rules, and behavior contracts to create their own schedules and expectations for the day. We serve 10 specialized classes of students from ages 3-15.

We make our students materials using a laminator, and we need some materials to better organize our time with students (timer), and book bins.

Our students love Magna Tiles, play centers, and dry erase board activities for literacy and math. We collaborate with specialists and work on a variety of leisure skills goals, such as pretend play, and attending. Fullfilling this list will bolster our supplies- thank you!
