A Simple Ball

By Anne K.

I have a student who has ASD. He very much lives within his own world. At the beginning of the year when we would go to the gym and play, I watched him grab a basketball and be very content bouncing his basketball around the gym by himself.View Story I have a student who has ASD. He very much lives within his own world. At the beginning of the year when we would go to the gym and play, I watched him grab a basketball and be very content bouncing his basketball around the gym by himself. As the year progressed and the partners became more familiar with the athletes, I watched this boy being asked to bounce the ball with some of his peers. Then I watched him participate with a group of boys as they had a shoot around with the basketballs. It warmed my heart to see this individual who spent most of his day within himself, enjoying the company and friendship of others.

About Anne K.: I'm a special education teacher, who advises a peer to peer program.
