Classroom Management Strategies and other Teacher Worthy Ideas
The world as seen by an Autistic student isn’t pretty or encouraging to them. They just “don’t fit” in our traditional classroom organization and they know it!
Here’s another wonderfully insightful post by “Anonymously Autistic” who regularly writes about her God-created life. This time she relates how she felt in school. I think you’ll find it pretty interesting.
“School wanted me to learn boring things that seemed completely irrelevant and I had a lot of trouble with that. My other problem at school is that we were expected to sit still for long periods of time without fidgeting. At home I had fidget toys all around me (pinwheels, kaleidoscopes, silly putty, and more). At school no toys were allowed.”
“Growing up in my own little bubble, the world in my head is magical and bold. My whole life it has felt as if people are constantly trying to pull me out of that bubble – but the bubble is where I want to be. I am the bubble and the bubble is me.”
Here’s the link to learn how she thought and felt during her school time.
