The Centering Song

Bonnie Epstein



In our room for Autistic students, we had seven children: three were five years of age and new to the school, one boy was non-verbal, one was albino and required dim lighting and one was a female with repetitive scripting; two were seven years old, the boy was eager to please and compliant, the girl was new to the school and used hitting, kicking, scratching and other inappropriate physical actions to express her frustrations. She also required special dietary considerations, including offering water frequently, and protein every hour. Our classroom was rounded out by two nine year olds, one of whom was able to function independently in inclusion classes. The other boy persevered on space ships, planets and outer-worldly structures.
