Autism has no boundaries. Working with children 3-6 years of age is very challenging as well as rewarding. Most of our children are non-verbal, and their means of communication is via pictures. People with autism, for the most part, lack social skills and the ability to show emotions. I am working with the students to identify their needs and wants using the picture exchange program. I have also created a book to help them identify the names and faces of the others students in the room. This helps teach them to interact with others, thus enhancing their social skills. A digital camera would be an asset to our room to enable us to create more interactive books as well as better pictures of the objects that are important to the students in communicating their needs and wants. The camera would also help in teaching them to identify feelings and emotions.
