As a special education teacher teaching students with Autism, I see students daily who are faced with several challenges, both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, my students are eager to learn both academics and life skills in order to create for themselves a better life.
My students are eager learners that enjoy learning about the world around them and being involved in everyday activities.
My students have all been identified with high functioning Autism and are learning to navigate in the world around them. They are very intelligent students, with several also being identified as gifted, who enjoy the things every 4th and 5th grader enjoys.
My students are eager learners who learn best through a variety of modalities. In today’s classroom, technology greatly enhances the learning environment.
Research has shown that students, especially those identified with Autism, learn best through a combination of modalities including audio and visual means.
In order for my students to adequately access the technology available in my classroom we need headphone adapters for our laptops, a central charging station for our iPads, and USB flash drives to save student work for student portfolios. These items will help to ensure that we are able to maximize the use of our classroom technology.
