My students need aprons while assisting with the cooking activities and an iPad to communicate with their customers.
This is a separate school that serves students ages 3 to 21 with severe intellectual disabilities. Many of these students have concurrent challenges such as autism, blindness, deafness, or physical disabilities. Families find it difficult to take the children out into the community once they have returned home from school due to transportation of wheelchairs and behaviors. Our focus is to provide opportunities for students to explore and develop independent functioning by addressing students’ individual needs. Through home, school and community involvement, we create an educational environment to maximize student success. Being the Daily Living teacher, I am fortunate to see all 144 students each week. Many students require hand over hand assistance to complete an activity and most are non-verbal.
My project requests cover several aspects of our school year. The students will benefit from the canopy at events throughout the school year. We participate in craft day, Special Olympics, and Challenge Day. This will allow the students to be protected from the elements.
Our kids are learning functional skills that will carryover to life after their school years.
Skills include money skills, communication, measuring, following directions and identifying objects. They participate in a lunch service several times a month. The students assist in preparing the meal and then serving it to the staff at the school. The addition of table cloths and aprons will allow the students to feel confident in the quality of their "business".
Finally, many students need assistance in transitioning throughout the day. Being a related art teacher and having sensory items to assist in this transition can greatly benefit our students.
You donate directly to the teacher or project you care about and see where every dollar you give goes.
