My Students

We are a special day class in an exceptional elementary school that receives Title I funds in the Los Angeles area.

Our classroom is full of unique, enthusiastic learners who have Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in grades Transitional Kindergarten through Second Grade.

Students enjoy expressing themselves by participating in daily classroom routines. Our language arts and mathematics routines include reviewing letters, sounds, counting, etc. as a group. They enjoy participating through singing familiar songs and through kinesthetic learning activities.

We love to learn!

My Project

Some students with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) enjoy engaging in sensory activities. Play is one of the most effective ways for a children to learn about their surroundings and develop fundamental life skills. Sensory play is any activity that stimulates a child's senses such as touch, sound, taste, sight, and smell.

Sensory toys and activities can help students to regulate emotions, to attend during instruction or to de-escalate during challenging situations.

Engaging in sensory play is a fun way for kids on the autism spectrum to stimulate their brains so that they can become better learners, benefit from a longer attention span, and learn how to communicate with their peers. Sensory activities for children with autism can help improve a range of developmental issues including cognitive development, improved coordination and increased concentration.
