My Students

Our school serves students with Autism from grades K-12. My 7 students are in grades 10, 11 and 12. They all function mentally at a cognitive level between 3 to 6 years old. Students with autism spectrum disorder or ASD are often visual learners, meaning they do best when they can actually see concrete examples. My students learn best by doing. In the classroom we use tools like visual schedules, social stories with pictures, and modeling. These are really good ways of helping them learn and understand concepts. Most children with ASD are very literal and concepts learned in the classroom are hard to carry over into the real world.

My Project

My Students with Autism are visual learners and have a hard time staying focused. Having a projector in the classroom will give them a focal point and enable all of them to experience the world through the Web simply by hooking up my laptop. They will be able to see real-world examples to subjects being taught. My students can observe step by step instructions on Daily Living Care, learn a new dance and follow yoga, but best of all I can celebrate my students by displaying their own creative masterpieces (art, drawings, or poems) to share with the class.
