My Students

I have seven students in a K-2 autism classroom. Most of my students have limited verbal skills and do not communicate much on their own. They have varying levels of academic skills and the majority are working on learning basic skills as well as communication and social skills.

We have a structured routine throughout the day with many hands-on and independent activities.

We have a morning routine that students look forward to every day, independent work time where students practice working by themselves on skills they have mastered, group time to work on academic skills and writing, story time to work on comprehension, math, science and art time where we create creative and colorful projects using construction paper and following picture directions. They have made so much progress so far this year with academic, social and communication skills.

My Project

My students have a variety of sensory needs that we try to meet the best we can throughout the school day. A sensory gym provides an opportunity that we can't give them at school. It is a great opportunity for students to work on fine and gross motor skills while interacting in an open space with their peers. They also have the opportunity to work on social and communication skills.

Students will be able to gain the sensory input they need by participating in the activities at the sensory gym.

The sensory gym has a big trampoline, a zip-line, swings, things to climb up and interactive toys. Students need the sensory input to help regulate themselves socially and physically.
