I want my students to be able to control a tape recorder by themselves in order to listen to books on tape. This requires the use of an adapted tape recorder that can be controlled by the student with the touch of a special switch. I would like to purchase an adapted tape recorder for my students to use during the school day. My students are in grades K-2 and enjoy listening to stories. I want to give them the independence of being able to control the tape recorder by touching a switch attached to the tape recorder. My school serves approximately 200 students ranging in age from 5 to 21 years. They are certified as trainable mentally disabled, severely and profoundly disabled, multi-disabled, educable mentally disabled and autistic. Being able to control a book on tape with the use of a switch would add so much to my student's daily routine. I want them to have as much independence as possible while being able to enjoy their stories on tape. For this project I would like to purchase an adapted tape recorder. I currently have seven students with multi-handicaps in my special education classroom that would benefit from this project. Thank you for helping our students to achieve their goals.
