My Students

I am an autistic support teacher in a class of students with autism at a public school in Pennsylvania. Each student in my class has a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder and has an Individualized Education Program to help guide their instruction through differentiation, modifications, and accommodations in the classroom.

The academic, social, and functional needs of my students vary in many ways.

In order for students in my classroom to be successful, there are a number of materials needed to help engage them, assist with their daily individualized routine, and to meet their academic and behavioral needs. We will use a variety of hands-on experiences and opportunities to foster learning. Having an organized and highly structured environment helps the flow within the classroom and leads to academic success and overall growth.

My Project

As we are all living through uncertain times due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I am remote teaching my autistic support k-2 students. This has been a challenging process, however we are all working together to make it as smooth at possible. As I reflect my teaching and try to be the best I can now, I am also thinking ahead to the next school year.

The use of storytelling kits will help my visual learners increase their understanding in stories that are being read.

My hands on learners will develop their telling time and counting money skills with efficiency with the math kit. My classroom as a whole will function better using laminating paper and velcro which will allow me to create schedules, token boards and first then charts.
