My Students

I have one of the best group of students to work with who have autism disorder. They all have different needs and interests.

My students make the day fun and interesting with their unique personalities.

My students come from diverse backgrounds. Even though they come from diverse backgrounds, my students have some things in common: they are happy, smiling, and eager to learn. They love to come to school and interact with their peers every day. They are creative, full of energy, happy, and full of personalities.

My Project

My students need engaging activities to develop language/communication skills! Most of our activities are years old and have seen better days! New materials will provide fun and engaging activities into our day. Having a selection of new activities will keep my students interested and engaged with lessons taught.

Having fun and engaging activities helps special needs students with their environment.

We need educational activities to develop language skills such as language activity boxes, puppets, photo library to help teach the students language skills.

These activities materials that are old and incomplete. By getting these items, it will help my students be more attentive, help with concentration, and center them as a whole. They have capacity to learn but they need the tools to help them grow.
