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.
We are asking for donations to help bring in some new materials to make our classroom different. We are working to have our curriculum to thematic, have the same color scheme, to make our classroom less busy, and overstimulating. The colors we have chosen are are mellow, yet they still have a high contrast so our students can easily see them. We have chosen a new calendar, days of the week, helper job chart, birthday chart, and some motivational posters not only for the students but for reminders to our wonderful staff too! We are hoping by making everything match, and more mellow colors we will be able to have a more fun engaging learning environment that is easier to focus in!
