For the Autistic Awareness month in April, we did several things during the middle of the month. We had a school assembly that included performances from the students with autism, a cookie decorating social with students in the general education population, a parent appreciation breakfast and also had several basket raffles to raise money for our AU program.
For the school assembly, I was the master of ceremony (mc). With the help of my staff, we made t-shirts for my students. One of my students read a story about himself which was titled, “All About Me” created by his ABA. My students also sang a song called, “I am awesome!” One of the teachers in the program showed a slide show that educated students in the general education population about autism. After the assembly, the students had some “blue” cupcakes and other snacks. It was a busy but inspiring and educational week!
