My Students

Last year, our district opened its very first self-contained ASD classroom. In the past, our students were bused to nearby districts in order to meet their needs. Our program started from scratch and has tripled in size. Last year, our program serviced seven kindergarten children, and this year we will service 21 students ranging from K-4th grade. We set a great foundation last year and will continue to build a program that meets the needs of every one of our students.

Our students are an amazing group; each one brings their own personality and strengths to our program.

Every day is an adventure filled with laughter and progress!

Our students need a supportive, structured setting that meets their individual sensory needs in order to be successful in a classroom setting. Our goal is to provide them with the skills and supports that would enable them to participate in activities with their peers in a general education setting.

My Project

The students in our ASD program have varying sensory needs. We are currently working on creating a space that will provide the sensory input that the thrive on. This space will not only be used for the students in the ASD classrooms but the other special needs classrooms in our center based program as well.

The super-safe light up water table will be the main attraction in our sensory room.

It will allow us to put various items in it for different students to enjoy. Several of our current students love bead necklaces and the trend is spreading! Water beads will provide a second option for sensory play in the table. As time passes we will be able to add to our collection of items for the table. This is a piece of equipment that will be used for years to come.
