Teaching Special-needs Children to Sew

Do not underestimate what special-needs children can do.  My sister is high functioning so I was sure she could learn to sew.  Because I teach children as young as 7 on a sewing machine, I knew what kind of coordination was needed.  If you are unsure if you should take on this task, ask these questions:

  1. Ask yourself: "Can she do what a 7 year old can do in other areas of coordination and following directions?"
  2. Ask her:  "Do you have the desire to learn to sew?"

If both answers are "Yes!" then she can definitely learn to sew.  Teach her as you would any other child.
