I currently have 8 non-verbal students that require 1:1 direct adult support due to significant sensory, language, and behavioral needs.
My students utilize an alternative curriculum that is researched-based for students with Severe Autism and includes components of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We utilize the TEACCH methods (Structured Learning) and are 100% visual-based to allow my students to understand and navigate through their daily school environment.
These hands-on activities will allow my students to understand, connect, and navigate their learning.
The Color Maze will help students sort and identify colors. Number Boards and Counting Mats will be used to develop number sense and counting skills through repetition.
The Pattern Blocks and Geometry Center will be used during guided math to learn shapes and colors. The Stampers and Sponge Painters will be used during our writing center to develop fine motor skills. Language Lotto, Positional Words, and Create a Burger Sequence will help develop and support hands-on language and communication skills through object identification.
The Walking Rope will guide my students to develop social skills and safety awareness.
All of these materials will help my non-verbal students with Autism develop academic and language skills through hands-on learning.
