My Students

I work with kindergarten, first, and second graders with autism. My students all have very unique needs and they all learn in a variety of ways.

My school tries to provide the materials necessary for my students, but it is not always enough.

My students deserve everything they need to learn in their own ways. Teaching students with autism is both challenging and rewarding, and I really try to go above and beyond when helping to provide a beneficial education for my students.

My Project

My students will use these materials daily during social skills and fine motor activities. The Magnetic Language Rods, Building Fine Motor Skills Games, and Beginner's Peg Puzzles will all increase my students' abilities to use fine motor skills and social skills.

All of the games for social skills and fine motor can be used to teach multiple skills necessary for my students to learn.

Teaching younger children with autism requires materials like these. Some ways these materials help strengthen their fingers include building puzzles, writing, rolling dice, and playing very meticulous games that require a lot of practice and development of these skills.
