REMINDER, REMINDER...You Got This!

 

At this time, many parents and teachers are looking for activities and lessons for their students who are now at home and being instructed by parents. Although some families can use apps or print off lessons, not all families can.  AutismClassroom.com has created a 4- week long set of ideas for activities for young children with autism.  Many make use of everyday objects that are found at home. Activity ideas include phonics, language, social skills, play skills, fine motor, and sensory fun. A great deal of emphasis is on fostering skills related to playing and relating to others.  The goal is to spark ideas for families when deciding what to teach.
