My Students

"I Get It!"- that wonderful sentence that every teacher loves to hear. These books will help build my students' literacy skills in terms of comprehension and fluency while also helping with their social thinking!

I work with amazing 3rd-5th grade students with Autism.

We are a new program that just started this year. We are working hard toward our goals, but need some supplies to make it more meaningful. Our school is amazingly inclusive, and these books would help to provide resources for all of the students in the school, while also providing my students with an extra push.

My Project

Social awareness is a struggle for students on the Autism Spectrum. This doesn't just effect their friend-making (while hugely important), it also effects their reading comprehension. My students are often unable to predict, imagine, or empathize. These books will help build social thinking knowledge while also working on reading comprehension.

My students will be able to make growth in multiple areas of struggle just by having access to these books.

Our program is new and these books will provide help to many students now and in the future.
