My Students

My students work so hard to make gains in their deficit areas! They do not give up. Although they have struggled in the area of reading, math, sensory, and cognition, they always give 100%!

Students with Autism sometimes have difficulty calming themselves.

Incorporating sensory aides has been helpful to calm them. When students with Autism are calm, they are more focused and can make more gains in their area of deficit.

My students are awesome kids that deserve so much! I would love to have some sensory aides to help them in class when they are struggling emotionally.

My Project

Weighted blankets are used to help students with Autism and other sensory issues calm down and ease anxiety. I would love to have a couple of blankets available to my students when the stress and anxiety is just too much for them. A calm student is ready to learn. Weighted blankets and fidgets can help a student regain focus and calmness. I would love to have these resources available to help with students who are overwhelmed, upset, unfocused, and sensory overloaded. Fidgets are great for students with Autism and ADHD. Sometimes students need something to occupy their hands to help them focus. A fidget is a perfect solution for those that need their hands occupied.
