SOUTH ST. LOUIS COUNTY, Mo. ( -- Students usually follow the curriculum their school has in place for them. But one student at Lindbergh High School is creating her own curriculum for a special purpose.

Taylor Baxter is a senior at Lindbergh High School and recently she and her sister spoke at Concord Elementary about her “Project Self” curriculum.

Lindbergh Schools high school senior

It is a lesson plan designed to help students better understand the needs of classmates with physical or behavioral challenges.

Taylor got the idea when her little sisters said she was confused, and even scared, by a classmate with autism. She has designed lesson plans and support material that she provides to the schools.

Right now, three Lindbergh schools are using it and five other districts have reached out to Taylor for information.

Taylor hopes that one day “Project Self” will be used across the nation.
