Light Table for Pre-K with Autism

My Students

How do you communicate the things you want and need in your everyday life? The students in my classroom are 3 to 4-year-olds who are limited verbally or completely nonverbal. They constantly surprise me and test the limits of my creativity.

Their diagnoses range from developmental delay to autism, to down syndrome- and many of them are nonverbal or minimally verbal.

That means they do not communicate by speaking. They communicate by pointing to symbols (pictures and words) in order to let others know what they are thinking.

I create visual symbols to place in my students' classrooms and make personalized communication books so that they can communicate throughout the day.

My Project

My students greatly enjoy center and small group time in the classroom. During this time, students are able to participate in hands-on activities that support literacy, mathematics, and social-emotional growth. Through the Tabletop Light Panel and the Light Table Manipulative Center, my students will be able to engage in both literacy and mathematics.

The Tabletop Light Panel will also allow these students to engage in learning with a calming sensory activity.

Being a room for students with special needs, a lot of students have sensory needs. Using the light table with different manipulatives will also to help regulate their behavior.
