Sevastopol School District, Wisconsin – The school district plan to make an autism awareness project that students created in April a permanent feature.

The district received a Department of Public Instruction Autism Evidence Based Practice Mini Grant for the 2013-14 school year and grant is renewable for up to three years.

The grant provided funds for 12 people who were able to receive training about working with children on the autism spectrum.

Jody Arbter, Sevastopol’s speech language pathologist and Autism Program support teacher said:

“The whole goal (of taking part in the week) is to keep people aware of what autism is and acceptance and understanding,”

The display in April was created using large paper puzzle pieces decorated by elementary students.

Some students drew pictures on their pieces and others wrote short statements.
The display also has the slogan,

“No matter our size or shape or color … our likes or dislikes … or our strengths or weakness … WE ALL FIT TOGETHER.”

The project will be framed during the summer break.
