My Students

I work with students who have autism. Each one of these students have individual sensory needs. They are also impulsive and have a difficult time following directions. Some of our students are non verbal and relay on picture symbols and communication devices.

My students have splinter skills and each one has an area that they are excel in.

They need frequent breaks and require a visual schedule. Students have a difficult time when things are out of routine and need time to be prepared if something is going to change during the school day.

My Project

I work with students with autism. Some of our students within the class are highly sensitive to sounds. Sounds such as pushing in their chairs and/or moving their desk can cause these students discomfort. Students are not able to use both hands when pushing in their chair when moving centers, pushing in their chair, or moving their desk to do group work because they are covering their ears, as to not hear the sound.

My goal is for these desk socks to reduce/eliminate the sounds within the classroom when the students get out of their chair and/or push their desk.

With the sound reduced and/or eliminated students will be able to use their hands to do these everyday task, since they will not be covering their ears.
