free teacher resources and printables from OT Mom

I offer these free teacher resources and printables 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 really are 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!

Information Handouts

For parent/teacher meetings, or parent seminars, you may find these printable handouts useful. They contain some basic information helpful to parents, and will direct them to specific pages on this website where they can find relevant activities.

Just click on the link for an instant PDF download. You will need Adobe Reader or equivalent to open the PDF.

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 please 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.
