I’m seeking creative ideas to teach ELA and math to a non verbal student with autism in middle school that also is not fond of using a pencil. We just started using a communication app with him this year. I’m looking for suggestions for maybe apps or manipulative games that will be engaging. His receptive language is high he just lacks verbal communication. I’m also interested in promethean board activities. We use News 2 You/Unique Learning system and they are great. I’m just wanting variety.

Christa Joy is another one we use quite a bit. She has lots of good novel studies with symbol-based activities.


Look up TEACCH

Word wall has great ELA activities - sorting and the like.

Additional Posts in Special Education Teachers

Is anyone an elementary resource teacher and their school uses power school for grades? We switched over and are at a loss on how to have the gen ed teacher and me give grades in the same subject...


Good morning. What special incentives has your district put in place to retain and draw educators to your schools?


What challenging fun projects should I have my gifted high schoolers do?


I'm getting an intern! Kind of like a student teacher but he's not that far in his degree. Previously worked in mild to moderate and I am virtual with moderate to intensive!

What would you like to know from your mentor?


I am working with a self contained student to learn his sight words. We are using Snap Words and I am excited about his progress. But when we go to share his success the other teacher says " He can't do that. He doesn't even know the letter names." Right in front of him. It broke my heart for him. I have data that shows he does know his letters and sounds and can identify 14 of his sight words, but the teacher doesn't believe in him or what I tell her. It makes me feel so discouraged.


How many teachers have to work next week?


This fight has gotten real! I’ve been offered a job, advertised as remote, but they want to have a blended program with teachers on campus. Small school, 10-15 to a class... maybe, masks ( I’ll have to ask if they’re mandatory), distancing and a continuous cleaning staff. Sounds great but I’m 62 with 5 underlying conditions! Have to negotiate a contract Monday... I’m hoping I’ll be able to work on-line as NV is one of the growing hotspots in this Pandemic!

Any idea on good resources for puzzles (regular, crossword, wordsearch) for Autism. I have a kinder who is incredible at them but ones I find are too difficult and irrelevant.


In your school district, who is responsible for writing IEP goals for a student who is graduating from 8th to 9th- the middle school teacher or the high school teacher? I ask bc I wrote some IEP behavior goals for a student who's going to hs next year and the high school responded with, "we don't do that here". OK, so are you going to write them?


Does anyone have a good way of making modified virtual assignments? Ideally a drag and drop type sorting activity would be great. None of the platforms were using have anything like that built in.


Does anyone have any advice on how to write standards based IEP goals when the student is significantly behind grade level skills?

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate gen Ed teachers’ understanding of the impact of SPED students disabilities on their academic or behavior? 1 being poor understanding and 10 being great understanding.

I recently got in trouble for not having a secure/locked place for all my IEP files. What do you use to keep your files secure?


There’s nothing like waking up to a call on August 1 from my district coordinator telling me that they want to move me from my middle school resource room SpEd position (which I love) to K-5 Setting 3 SpEd position. I told her all the reasons that won’t work for me and even gave her another idea that would require a non-licensed teacher to be moved so I could take her place at the hs. So, I’ll be spending my Monday applying for a new job in another district. How’s your Monday going so far? 😭😔


Co-teaching in three separate 70 minute ELA blocks and 70 minutes in the resource room! ideaa on the best collaboration tools?

Curious what everyone’s caseloads look like in their district if you are a resource room teacher. Do you have 504’s and IEP’s on your caseload?


How would you respond to a teacher or teachers that tell you they haven’t had time to read over the IPP/IEP(s) that were written in October and revised in March? I wanted to snap but walked away after saying it is your responsibility to and if you aren’t you are failing that child. It comes up a lot here and I’m frustrated.
