My Students

Our school consists of students from PreK - 4th grade. We are a community of diverse learners with special education, gifted, ELL, and high poverty students learning together in each classroom.

Many students are nonverbal and have difficulty expressing their wants and needs.

Alternative communication devices are needed in order for the students to have a voice within the classroom.

The one thing that this diverse group of students has in common is that they are determined and eager to learn. Their willingness to try, despite their deficits, proves that they can be successful if provided the right classroom atmosphere and environment.

My Project

These materials will increase communication and social skills of nonverbal students. The devices will enable the students to have a voice and capability of making their wants and needs known. All students crave a sense of belonging, these communication devices will benefit the students socially and academically. Giving nonverbal students alternative ways to communicate increases their self esteem, love of learning, attendance at school, social interactions with peers and adults, and feelings of belonging. The students will be able to utilize these devices in all learning environments, specialty classes, lunchroom, and social events. Help to give all children a voice!
