What should you think about before setting up the classroom? What are the important parts of running an autism classroom that everyone seemed to forget to tell you? Could that be the missing piece to wrapping your head around getting the room organized and set up? We are the home of the Step by Step Autism Classroom Design course made specifically to help you out.
Teaching social skills, play skills, language skills, imitation skills, and communication skills in your autism classroom is critial for your students. Building these areas helps to give your students skills they can use for life. Use the "social skills" or "strategies" menu option for details on these topics.

We have a wide variety of supplemental supports for science, social studies, math and reading that make providing great instruction easier. We also have tasks for IEP bins, fine motor practice and sensory activities.
If you are looking for a variety of supports for school teams and families, they may be here. Included are items to help your autism classroom or in-home instruction easier. There are student worksheets for social skills, language skills and writing, digital downloads of printable worksheets (workbooks for these are available on Amazon), mugs for teachers, autism shirts for educators and “how to” books for teachers, paraprofessionals and parents.
Building social skills is a key component of both creating a great autism classroom and providing tools to help autistic students excel!
We've created a collection of resources with a special focus on social interaction, communication, language, play, and imitation to build and improve these essential social skills.
