Free Teacher Resources

Please adjust your settings to enable images!
I use small photos to illustrate the information and activities that I share, and you will have a much better experience on this website if you can view the images.

I offer these free teacher resources out of my admiration and respect for teachers, who carry a huge workload and also have to find ways to help the special needs children and struggling learners in their classes.

They are aimed at preschool, kindergarten and early elementary teachers, but homeschool moms may find them helpful too!

I personally hate having to give out my email address to get a freebie - to me, that feels like paying with my personal identity. So, all my freebies are really free - you just click and download :-) . If you are interested in signing up for my newsletter, you can sign up on a separate page.

Click on the quick links to jump to the section you are interested in, or scroll through my entire page to see them all!

More Free Teacher Resources

Kay M. Donato has a valuable page on Teaching Strategies that I think is immensely helpful for anyone who is teaching any child with special needs, not just autism.

There are lots of free information and activity ideas on this website, so sign up for my free newsletter to keep in touch with new pages and new ideas as I post them.

These free teacher resources arise from requests made and needs identified by teachers who have contacted me.

It is my hope that teachers all over the world will find these pages helpful, which will enable more children to be the best they can be!
