Enhancing the Learning of Neurodivergent Learners: Teaching the Context of a Functional Naturalistic Activity new
The project aims to provide neurodivergent learners with a motivating, functional, generalization-driven weekly school activity. The snack cart will provide students opportunities to build social and life skills in their community. The Students will make/deliver teacher order forms, stock the cart with materials, make the deliveries and collect payment. Our learners benefit from visual supports, so these will be developed for all tasks. IEPs goals will be embedded into the tasks including targeting math goals by working on counting and sorting supplies or social goals by engaging in conversations. We anticipate that after initial funding, the profits of running the Z Cart will cover the cost of future expenses.
