Students With ASD Looking For Some Organization!

My students need materials to help foster independence and learn organization!

My Students

We are a lively group of 1st-3rd grade students all with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Because ASD is such a spectrum, we learn in a spectrum of ways and have a spectrum of needs within our class.

Our students learn in a variety of ways and many students have sensory needs.

Sometimes, our students need to take breaks with sensory toys/activities before they can return to their academic work. Other times, the traditional ways of teaching students aren't successful, and they need more hands-on approaches! When teaching is tailored to each child, each child can reach their goals.

My Project

Hello! We are a Special Needs Classroom in an urban district. There are ten lively and spunky students all in need of a number of materials. Our classroom is one where we do not have a closet, so sometimes it can get a bit messy, and we could use your help getting organized with some materials and adding some materials we are missing!

We are looking for bins to use for vocational bins, which are activities within a bin!

These bins can be used for sensory items (sand, water beads, etc.), matching activities, sorting activities, and all sorts of things! These vocational bins help promote independence!

We could also use some items that are looking a bit rough for wear, such as Magna Tiles, new crayons, and noise canceling headphones. Our students absolutely LOVE building with the Magna Tiles, which help promote imagination and creativity as well as help develop fine motor and visualization skills. While they have been MUCH LOVED, we are missing most of our shapes, and hope to replace them. Likewise, we could use new crayons and noise-canceling headphones to help us concentrate.

We appreciate your support of our classroom!
