My Students

My students are special, they are children with differing abilities. They are 3-5 year olds diagnosed with Autism and speech delays.

With Autism come a wide range of challenges such as behavior challenges, sensory processing challenges, speech delays and lack of social skills.

My students are attending an intensive instruction classroom 5 days/week for 5 hours everyday. The program is designed to help them in each of the above mentioned areas to support their learning and help them achieve their goals.

My Project

My students learn differently and providing them with various sensory items /activities helps me to reach their learning potential.

Toys and fidgets such as motion fidgets, light up lamps, anxiety relievers such as pop tubes and stretchy strings can help my students to calm their sensory needs thus improving their learning capabilities.

Other requested materials such as the early learning kit and the color puzzle will provide students with visually attractive real pictures and I can work on teaching them not only language but also advanced skills such as categorization. While teaching students diagnosed on the autism spectrum it is important that the materials are of high interest to the students.
