My Project

Due to my students' Autism, they process information and their surroundings differently than most kids. This can include being more easily distracted, having a harder time with executive functioning skills, experiencing increased anxiety, difficulty self-regulating, and being sensitive to different sensory inputs. Because of this, we try to maintain a classroom with the least amount of extra stimuli and distractions as possible, while still providing our students with the same rich school experience as their peers.

It will be so helpful to have additional storage cabinets with secure locks to store classroom materials out of sight, where they are less distracting to my students, but still easily accessible for when it's time to bring them out to learn.

We could really use a freestanding cabinet or two - with locks - to do this.
