Sensory Overload: We Can Overcome It

Help me give my students who are on the autism spectrum some sensory items that will help them as they adjust to the sensory overload that will face them as they enter Pre-K.

My Students

The students in my classroom struggle with learning in one or more areas. They desire to be like all their peers in the general education classroom. When they are able to experience success, however small it may seem to us, they are excited. We have learned to praise the smallest of gains!

What a delight it is to see the expressions on the faces of my kids when they complete a task with success!

My team and I work for those moments with these kids. Our goal is to help these students accomplish all their goals and become independent workers in the general education setting.

My Project

Children who are on the Autism Spectrum have a hard time functioning in situations with a lot of stimulation- like an early elementary classroom. Before they can truly focus on academics, like reading and math, they have to deal with the sensory overload.

If we want to effectively teach children with autism, we cannot ignore their sensory issues.

Learning tools that focus on sensory issues will help these students adjust to the school environment. The items on my list will assist me in reaching my young students with autism. I will create a sensory area within my classroom that students can use when they become overwhelmed with the world around them. As they explore with these sensory items, they will be able to more calmly interact in the classroom and be ready to learn new concepts.
