My Students

I am so excited to continue my educational journey in an elementary classroom for students with autism. I am starting the school year with 8 students grades K - third. Each of the students has been diagnosed educationally with autism. Each student receives direct speech and language services. My students will be working on increasing their communication skills to build on independence. Please help contribute to making teaching a success for the students in my classroom. THANK YOU very much!

My Project

I am looking for resources (games, tools, activities, toys) to bring into my classroom. Specifically, resources that can promote communication, play, social, and functional skills. These resources can help provide lifelong, independent skills that we want our children to have. I'm looking to create communication boards to go with each game/toy to provide greater opportunities for communication. The toys and games I have selected are for the purpose of teaching my students specific skills and making a difference in their education. The toys and games will create creative was for my students to learn. I would appreciate any and all support on this specific project.
