My Students

I teach severely Autistic students. They are joy to teach, and it is wonderful to watch them finally learn and retain a skill.

My students are junior high aged, and they spend all day in a self contained classroom.

They learn important life skills with objectives such as: counting money, shopping skills, social skills, and reading. In order to combat anxiety, which is common in individuals with Autism, we need some motor skills activities and sensory activities.

My Project

We learn by doing. My students objectives include learning to shop for food, but they can't really learn to shop for food without actually going through the motions. It is very expensive to educate Autistic students because there is no curriculum for Autism and I must piece together everything myself. My students are very eager to learn, but we lack the resources necessary to make learning meaningful. This shopping basket activity will replicate an actual shopping trip.

Your generosity will not only enhance my classroom and help educate my Autistic students, but help teach them to live and become independent.

These children are extremely deserving and ready to learn.
