Impact to My Classroom

# of Students Impacted: 10

The impact of these materials will not only reach my current students, but my future students for years to come.  Because of this grant, I was able to access fun and engaging materials to enhance the curriculum, which my students so desperately need!  Because my students have multiple disabilities including Intellectual Delays (low IQs) and Autism, they require hands-on materials to reinforce the skills and content that is being taught directly.  My students require visual representations and hands-on practice in order to fully comprehend new information.  By having these supplemental materials in the classroom, I have seen an increased motivation and engagement from the students.  They are excited to use the games and other activities, which has not only increased engagement, but reduced unwanted behavior.  These behaviors, which often appear when students are frustrated or "lost" during daily lessons, have significantly decreased while grades and comprehension of content have increased.  Students are learning more, retaining more, and are ultimately happier throughout the academic day! 

 

Original Grant Overview

Goal

My goal is to increase comprehension of academic content. 

 

What will be done with my students

The items chosen are research based methods to help students with Autism Spectrum and other Sensory Disorders increase learning time. These items help to provide supports that this population of students need within an instructional setting. Visual supports will be used to support academic instruction. Highly visual academic task activities will support academic content and provide independent practice opportunities to strengthen new skills in Language Arts, Math and Science. 

 

Benefits to my students

The benefit of these items will ultimately be increased learning gains throughout the year. By providing visual and tactile supports to the curriculum, students will increase comprehension of academic content being presented through increased practice.  

 

Describe the Students

My classroom consists of students who are presented with Autism/Sensory Disorders as well as Intellectual Delays. My students low performers for a variety of reasons (support needs, comprehension of material, and challenging behaviors). They attend a center school outside of the general education setting and require more academic and behavioral support than can be provided within the typical general education school.
