Schools are closed. Teachers are scrambling. Students are nervous. Parents are frustrated. If you teach students with autism and significant learning needs, then you are really confused and maybe panicking. Unlike your peers, you cannot print off a bunch of worksheets to send home. Many of your students cannot read or write. So, how are you supposed to get the required 2 weeks of lessons prepped and ready to send home?
Because so many schools closed, this past weekend, I totally redid my website to provide quality free online teacher resources for those who work with students that have autism and significant challenges. You can check it out HERE and sign up for free.
Here is the set up:
- one social studies lesson that contains 10 days with daily activities
- one science lesson that covers 10 days
- one novel unit that will cover almost an entire month
Each day has a video plus a related activity parents can download and print. I have provided non-print options as well. I also have lots of instructions on how to complete the activity, as I know some of these may be totally new to parents.
Put it on your phone and iPad
Finally, there is a free app you can download so everything is accessible from your phone or iPad.
So if your school’s closed, then I know you will find these resources helpful and easy to access and use. Creating materials for this population to use can be quiet challenging. But, they deserve the option to learn at home just as much as their peers.
I will re-evaluate where we are on March 30 to see if there are a lot of schools closed. If things are still in crisis mode, then I will certainly add more resources.
