Peek- A- Boo Where is the Easter Bunny? Adapted Book for Students with Autism

Monday, April 14, 2014

I love my adapted books as you know! Here is my adapted book for April.  We work on prepositions and finding the Easter Bunny… my kids have been loving it :)  This is a great book for students with autism and special needs.  Using board maker images they get the scripted and repetitive format to build this important skill.

Individualized Behavior Tools!

Wednesday, April 2, 2014

Okay.. so I hope this post helps me relate to each and every one of you.  I have been a little M.I.A. from my blog for a few weeks.  Simply put, I am overwhelmed.  I have a lot going on with my family, and I have a student who is just progressively getting more and more dangerous with his behaviors.  These behaviors start first thing in the morning and continue until we get him on the bus in the afternoon.  

To help… I made this simple RULE sheet that is carried around by his 1:1 aide.  Under the rules are the daily behavior data sheets where my aide takes data.

Art Project Ideas!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

I wanted to share with you a few art projects we have done these last few weeks that I have not had time to post about! I hope you can "pin" these to an ideas board and create these with your little kiddo's when you have some spare time.  They are all fun and easy to do with your friends!

Name Mosaics! 
I had my staff write each students name large on paper and then we started ripping away!  Students got to pick any color for each letter.  I cut colored construction paper into half inch strips and passed them out.  Students had to rip them and glue them on each letter.  Up close, they look like mosaics.  We put them up in our window to greet our visitors with a little bit of cheerful colors!

I find myself so often correcting people when they so casually use the word "normal" to describe a human being…. Really… who is normal?

  I love this saying :)
