Description

Class Experience

I have taught children and young people with special needs for over 20 years. When I taught music in public school, I had a special class for learners who were severely and profoundly disabled. In my undergraduate and master's level education classes, I have had extensive training in differentiating instruction for learners with intellectual, behavioral, and physical disabilities. For many years, I have volunteered at Special Olympics; I love it! I especially enjoyed volunteering in a Sunday school class for children with special needs. I have worked with children with severe autism, Down's syndrome, Williams Syndrome, FASD, TBI, and a variety of other developmental challenges. 
REQUIRED: We will use a scarf to "dance" with. For example, we might listen to some beautiful harp music and gently wave our scarves back and forth in the air. Any square of flowy fabric will do—preferably 12"x12" or bigger. These are sometimes sold as "dance scarves" or "juggling scarves." Or, it could be a ladies' scarf. (A great place to find these is a thrift store!) They could be sheer or opaque, silk or synthetic. No time to get a scarf? A tissue or bandana will work just fine!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Sometimes we may move around the room. Please ensure that your child has a safe space in which to move. If needed, push furniture out of the way to create an open space for movement. Please remove any items which could potentially be trip hazards. Thank you!
