Help me give my students with autism the supplies to learn necessary job skills. Items like the mini refrigerator, griddle and hand mixer well help my students learn cooking skills.
I work in a setting that is completely devoted to working with students with special needs. This is my first year as a 6:1:1 high school special education teacher primarily working with students with autism and intellectual disabilities. Most of my students are non-verbal. They are so remarkable though! I admire that they come to school ready to work. They are truly my reason for coming to work. They amaze me every day. I have made it my mission as an educator to focus on my students' abilities. After all, Dr. Temple Grandin affirms that "the world needs all kinds of minds.”
The unemployment rate for individuals with autism is absolutely staggering. Statistics show that approximately 85% of adults with autism are unemployed in comparison to the national unemployment rate being 4.5%.
My school has made it their mission to make sure that our students with autism will have the skills necessary to obtain jobs.
We want to provide our students with adequate cooking skills which will help them in the workforce in addition to their daily lives. Items like the blender, mixer and griddle will be utilized to demonstrate to the students how to prepare food like pancakes. Additionally with the use of items like the refrigerator and freezer students will learn what items need to be put there and when to discard expired items.
