My Students

Our students are all from three to five years old. Our classroom is typically their first school experience. The students in our classroom qualify under the education eligibility criteria for autism, with mild to moderate impairments in areas of social skills, language development, and sensory regulation and integration. Our students come from all cultural backgrounds and beliefs. We strive to make our classroom the best learning environment and experience we can for their first school experience.

Our class consists of eight amazing boys and two wonderful girls who all have an IEP (Individual Education Plan) qualifying under the educational eligibility of autism.

Each student has amazing skills and talents. Each student's IEP is created to build from their strengths and support their unique needs. The majority of our students' goals are created to support delays in the areas of social skills, play skills, academics, fine/gross motor, and coping skills.

My Project

We are requesting some large sensory materials for our classroom. Most of our students have sensory needs and sensory diets, meaning they need to move, wiggle, bounce, and fidget. A sensory diet has nothing to do with food. It’s a carefully designed series of physical activities and accommodations tailored to give each child the sensory input she needs.

Sensory diets can be used as part of sensory integration therapy.

Completing a sensory diet routine can help kids get into a “just right” state, which can help them pay attention in school, learn new skills and socialize with other kids.

We have asked for large motor sensory items such as swings, and the brackets to place them, and fortunately, we have many smaller items to help our students thus far.
