My Students

I serve as a speech therapist for a pre-K to 5th school. We have 4 self contained classrooms, 2 being in autism programs. My students are rock stars at working hard towards their goals in articulation, language, stuttering, social skills and use of communication boards! This school year, I plan to make specially designed packets containing flash cards, handouts, communication boards, etc. to supplement distance learning.

My Project

Students with sensory needs benefit from sensory stimulating toys and activities to help regulate themselves. Since transitioning to distance learning, some students may be in stressful situations from being out of their routines. These tools will be used as sensory breaks in between online classes, and at the home during their daily activities. The art materials are going to be used throughout their lessons with teachers and other service providers to target language, fine motor skills, and other academic concepts.

Having sensory tools and arts materials will enrich my students' learning experience during distance learning.
