My Students

The students in my class are all students with autism and/or intellectual disabilities. Most of them are of low socioeconomic status and receive public benefits of some or many forms. This doesn't stop them from being eager to learn new things in the classroom and the community. They are always working hard to do better and learn more. Our school community fosters this learning. Students and staff at our school are very accepting of students with special needs. We have a peer tutor program and a club where general education students hang out and do recreational activities with special education students.

My Project

This year we are expanding our Life Skills class to incorporate more leisure skills. My students have a difficult time coming up with things to do independently. During personal time, a typically developing individual will reach out to friends, read, watch a movie, exercise, play a game, etc. Often times, students with special needs have a difficult time doing an activity independently and will sit idle instead of finding something to do.

My students need yoga mats and various sports balls in order to explore various options for recreation and leisure.

Finding an enjoyable leisure activity will help my students to better understand themselves and be more comfortable in related social situations.
