TEACHING EXPERIENCE

We take standard 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade science and social studies (and a few English) unit information and convert it into visualized lessons or study guides. When our son with autism entered elementary school in an inclusion classroom, it quickly became clear that the reading and text-based curriculum and the auditory nature of a traditional classroom were going to be extremely challenging for him. He, like many other children with autism had vision problems. Due to his vision issues, our Applied Behavioral Analysis Therapists used visual stories to teach him different concepts and behaviors very successfully. It was natural for us to come to the conclusion that translating his elementary school lessons into visual stories or presentations would be critical for him to maintain his status in an inclusion class. When teachers, special education educators, administrators and other parents saw what we were creating, there was no doubt that we had to make this available to everyone. After years of working with therapists and educators to perfect our presentations, we are pleased to offer these lessons and flashcards to anyone who has situation in which a child may benefit from a visual education tool that has proven to be an integral part of our son’s education.

MY TEACHING STYLE

We take standard 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade science and social studies (and a few English) unit information and convert it into visualized lessons or study guides. We use pictures, drawings, and diagrams as much as possible to reduce the amount of text. Our lessons and flashcards are designed for children with autism, but they work great for anyone who just learns better visually. Neurotypical children have great success with our products as well.
