Professional development

Yoga for Students with Autism and ADHD

I need funds to obtain this excellent opportunity to be trained to teach my students mindfulness and yoga.

My Students

My students have autism and each one has a unique profile that comes with unique needs and abilities. Each student learns at different rates and in different styles. But overall I will use this yoga training to encourage my students to “be here”. This means attending to tasks, people, and their own goals. I plan to learn strategies to implement with my students to enable them to simply be here- a struggling quality that in general is a challenge for students with ASD!

My Project

This is the perfect opportunity to gain knowledge and strategies to have in my bag of tricks when it comes to helping a student de-escalate and return to a baseline status. Students with autism typically have trouble using language, and in turn, become escalated and display acting out behaviors. Teachers and behaviorists like myself want to be able to control the environment to ensure happy and calm students. We cater towards students' individual needs including sensory needs. Most times when working on academics, students will need a movement break. I plan to learn strategies, routines, and other calming methods through this training to set up our classroom environment for success!
