My Students

Our entire school is for students with moderate to severe disabilities who need life-skills based instruction. Our school has eighty students; most students have cognitive and social skills that range from those of an eighteen-month-old to those of a five-year-old. The goal of our program is to provide life-skills based instruction so students can live as independently as possible in the future.

Our students come from throughout the district and were placed in this setting based on their significant special needs.

We spend most of our class time developing self-care skills, in addition to basic reading and math skills. We also take trips into the community so students can practice social skills.

My Project

I am requesting additional toileting supplies (such as baby wipes, pads, and underwear) because many of my students cannot bring these extras to school. Each day, students take between three and five restroom breaks. During this time, each student either has their disposable underwear changed or gets assistance toileting with cloth underwear. My classroom staff and I use baby wipes on all students during toileting because it helps keep everyone much cleaner than the one-ply toilet paper that is provided at school.

Many of my students do not have complete bladder control and also do not have adequate additional toileting supplies for 'accidents.'

The extra sets of underwear and pants will ensure that we have each student's size so they can be comfortable if a change is needed. Many of the girls in my class are not able to bring extra pads when they are on their menstruation cycle. Having a stock of extra materials will allow us to educate the girls about how to use the pads and increase their independence with switching them throughout the day.
