It's me again. Trying to come up with a name for my middle school autism classroom. Do any of you have cool acronyms for your Life Skills or Autism classes? I am really liking the idea of "STRIVE" - Structured Teaching Reinforced in a Visual Environment. Thought that sounded both professional and cool. And it reflects what we do. I am trying to get people to stop saying "The Autistic Kids" or "The Autistic Class" - and give it a name that they can start saying "the LEAP class" or "The STRIVE kids" you know? I know we'll always have a stigma attached to us... well, just because we're the autism class, and I accept that! But our DOOR says Autism Spectrum Disorders Classroom, and that is not very exciting to me. People constantly say the ASD class, ASD kids, etc. I really feel if I could come up with a name for the program (which is brand new this year, and I started it!) we would be making our way AWAY from the ASD brand name... Any ideas? ? ?
