Goal

The goal of this grant is to provide an expansion to the Autism Unit Social Skills curriculum class library. The stories, teacher's guides and activities will be used to organize social skills lessons across multiple grade levels for students with unique deficits in social skill awareness for multiple social situations. The goal is to help give students and teachers engaging lessons so that they may take away a variety of strategies to use in the real world for navigating social situations that may be uncomfortable for them. 

 

What will be done with my students

Social skills lessons will be infused as part of the curriculum in all grade levels for students in both self-contained classes as well as those that are mainstreamed full time. Teachers will use the books and activity guides to help build lessons with standards for social situations and appropriate strategies to use for each situation. Students will then be able to practice these strategies in class with the activities provided and also practice throughout the day at school.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students who are on the Autism Spectrum often struggle with everyday manners and social etiquette that come naturally to many other kids. These stories have proven to be engaging for our students when used in the past and they enjoy the activities that go along with them. The stories will cover a variety of situations, ages and grade levels so that they can be accessible to a large group of students. These stories will also extend to cover health curriculum standards and topics. As we obtain more students to our ASD program the range of different social skills struggles increases and the need for more curriculum to help teach these students how to become independent and advocate for themselves in these situations becomes more important as they go up in grade levels and mature.  

 

Describe the Students

The students are all on the Autism Spectrum and also have a variety of other cognitive or physical limitations. They range in ages 3 through 13. Some of them are more independent and higher functioning and others need more support and assistance. We have students who are mainstreamed part time and full time into the general education setting with their peers and other students who are completely self-contained or on Access Points (non-standard diploma track).
