  • This is so inspiring and heartwarming to watch. I have a 3 year old son with autism and I wish I could find a classroom like this here in our location. Thanks for sharing…

  • I was non verbal in preschool if wanted I grunt,or if I wanted more food I would shake bowl or plate,I would point or I pull the teacher to whatever I wanted, because I learning difference I was label as mentality challenged, It was believed that that I would never attend college but I attending college and I am studying early childhood development I want to work with children who have autism and other special needs.

  • What if your ratio is 11 children/3 adults? Most of the children are non-verbal and I’m finding it challenging to try to work one on one with a child while 2 other children are playing in my station. I’d love this classroom and the ratio!

  • As a guy who grew up under the umbrella of autism… it’s nice to see instructors who choose to believe in these children, and I wish I had these kinds of teachers growing up as a kid. Luckily I did have a supportive family and (not to get too preachy) my faith that pushed me to believe, as the bible says that I could do all things through Christ who gives me strength. Idk what your views on this is… but God bless this teacher. I’m glad I came across the video for a college assignment… even if this was posted 4 years ago.

  • Your preschool is amazing! I am a Mother of two young adults affected with autism. I have created a scheduling system combining photos and words to help individuals at a variety of levels. The system is meant to help with focus and improve reading skills by starting out with using photos only, then photos and words, then words by itself. Or each child or adult using the ShopXplore bags can use the bag that is best suited for them. I would love to hear your comments regarding the ShopXplore bags. Please visit Thank you!

  • Thank you for this video. I have a nonverbal autistic 4 year old son. Of all of the research I have done in the past few years trying to understand what it means to be autistic and how as a parent I can help my son succeed This video was the most educating for me. Thank you again. Teresa Allison

  • 28 month old not talking. Says mom mama juice and this. Can learn, been using iPad games puzzles, matching letters and pictures. Dose great with those games. Has eye contact with us. Has suffered 3 seizures in past year, very frightening. Suffering constant constipation. Is that a symptom?

  • New subscriber here. I am a former teacher but now creating YouTube videos. Gave up teaching after car accident. I gave you a like & comment. Supporting one another the way it should be done. Yes!!!!! Keep bringing the good content & I’ll keep watching!!!!

  • Absolutely heart touching video. The work done by this teacher is uplifting to view. A difference to 1 child is a huge accomplishment. Well done!

  • This is truly a wonderful video. I only hope that inclusion can be possible for children in higher grades and throughout high school in Wisconsin. Thank you to DPI for including this as their vision. Now it is time to make it a reality for all students in all districts.
