Goal

The goal of this grant is to teach students on the Autism Spectrum about social etiquette and appropriate behavior strategies for a variety of different social settings so that they may be able to advocate for themselves independently. 

 

What will be done with my students

Teachers will use the books as a curriculum for social skills classes and work with the students by modeling and using role playing techniques to teach students appropriate social behaviors. The ASD unit has several of the social stories from this company that have been used previously and revisited with our students and our students often remember the stories from before and are excited to reread them. 

 

Benefits to my students

Students on the Autism Spectrum often have difficulty identifying social norms that come naturally to their non-disabled peers. These engaging social stories will help students identify different situations that they may find themselves in throughout the day and be able to navigate them independently by using the techniques taught in the stories. Often our ASD students go out to mainstream classes and these books could also be used by those teachers as needed for students who may have a specific social need within their class. 

 

Describe the Students

Our students generally fall on the Autism Spectrum but these students also tend to have several other disorders ranging from physical impairments to attention disorders. We have students who are mainstreamed with their peers and others who are completely self-contained throughout the day.  

 

Budget Narrative

The budget will be spent for social story books and classroom posters from Boys Town Press. The budget includes one set of posters and 8 social story books, along with shipping costs.
