Our school serves children with multiple disabilities from seven different school districts located on the west side of Cincinnati. We offer opportunities through multi-sensory lessons and technology for our students to reach their fullest potential towards independence.
The students in my room are hungry to meet new friends and use adapted equipment for engagement in activities.
They are kids that are excited to have the opportunity to attend school and learn new ways to interact with environment. Basic receptive and expressive communication skills open a whole new avenue of experiences.
My students continue to amaze me as they learn that they have a voice using an iPad to input their desires about their future endeavors'.
Engaging with an iPad helps my students realize that their actions and words have meaning and they learn to communicate. The tablet format motivates the students engage and learn how to activate the program or app they desire to use.
One student has become very opinionated using a yes and no page to choose activities and stories he would like to use.
I have recently discovered some “selfie” pictures that he had also taken.
Engaging in communication using the iPad with peers, family and teachers has changed this students world. I currently have two iPads to use in my classroom and could really use an additional iPad for students to engage.
