Hi, I believe I can help you a little. I, too, am a paraprofessional working with autistic children, we actually have an ABA classroom. I am in charge of "Art" in our room, and I find that even the severely autistic children I work with can do almost any art project that any other child could do as long as I break the steps down to very small ones that take no more than 5 to 7 minutes. Presently we are working on a project that involves many steps that will be done over the course of a week. It's called "All about me" and I am doing this with children ages 8 to 14, it is probably on a 5 yr old level realisiticly. It will have pictures of the kids, things they like and things about their family. One day we will work on foods then the next pets...etc. Keep it simple. I will add this site to my favs and check in to see if you have more specific questions
