My Students

My students are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. My students are learning to communicate, express their wants and needs, and master academic goals. Each one of my students are unique individuals and growing at their own pace.

My class consists of 6 amazing students.

Of those 6 students, 3 of them come from a Spanish speaking background. My students are faced with many challenges beyond their diagnosis. Therefore, it is my personal goal to meet the needs of my students and go above and beyond for each of them.

My Project

These materials will help my students increase their fine motor skills. My students receive occupational therapy on a weekly basis to work on their fine motor goals and more. However, it is my goal to help my students on a daily basis work on achieving their fine motor goals. It is important for my students to have classroom materials that will assist them in meeting these goals. The fidget materials will help my students improve their attending goals to remain on task while, decreasing inappropriate behaviors such as, getting out of their seat/laying on the floor. All of my students have behavior goals that are addressed daily. The negative behaviors often range from moderate to severe. In my classroom, it is important for me to create an environment that sets my students up for success to decrease negative behaviors. Therefore, giving me the opportunity to reinforce positive behavior with materials that will help my students reach their goals!
