My Students

I teach kindergarten-second grade special education. My students are mostly non-verbal and on the lower end of the autism spectrum. They are unable to work on technology or over video teaching as their focus and attention spans are limited. They learn best by engaging in hands-on materials, most of which is stuck in my classroom.

My non-verbal students on the autism spectrum are at a disadvantage without hands-on learning materials during this time of crisis.

We are currently using the Google Classroom platform but all of my students require 1:1 assistance when accessing technology. In addition to learning materials, they are in need of sensory tools to help them regulate their behaviors during work and while their parents might otherwise be engaged.

My Project

I want to make sure my special needs students on the autism spectrum and living in the heart of one of the pandemic outbreaks are properly stocked with snacks.

My students all require intermittent reinforcement to motivate them to work as they struggle to maintain focus and attention during learning.

With appropriate motivating edibles on hand, parents will be more reassured that their child will want to work. I also hope that this helps parents so that they do not have to worry about leaving their houses in the very crowded neighborhood in which they live.
