To provide financial assistance for my classroom this year. My classroom budget has been frozen for the past year due to COVID. This has required me to purchase learning materials out of pocket and this is not sustainable. This classroom is the center-based special education classroom for students with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am seeking a grant writer to complete the application process for a financial grant for my classroom. I would also like to become more familiar with the grant approval process/what grants I should be putting a focus on and learn how I can gather financial assistance to enhance my classroom and department overall.
Programming and Dollar Needs:
These materials will be used at school to help make the necessary accommodations for students on the autism spectrum. These items are specifically made for students with special learning needs. These items target communicative skills, sensory needs, and academic skills. Other items in this project will help with the organization of a special education classroom. The goal is for these students to reach their highest potential and ensure they have what they need to meet that goal. Being on the autism spectrum should not stop students from accessing what they need and utilizing the necessary supplies to meet their goals.
This means individuals supplies, communicative devices, and systems. These needs require anything from pencil grips, larger print paper, communicative devices (some students are non-verbal), sensory needs, and supplies that are specialized for students with special needs.
I am having a hard time providing for my classroom myself. These kids are amazing and exceptional. I learn and grow from them every day. With the right supplies and systems in place, I can ensure the most successful and safe learning environment for these kiddos to reach their highest potential.
