I work with a wide-spectrum of students who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, ranging from grades Kindergarten-Second Grade. This is a full day Specialized Program containing 6 students in Kindergarten and First Grade. This program is at a brand new school in the Henderson, NV area.
Autism is a developmental disorder of brain function characterized by three major types of symptoms: impaired social interactions, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication and unusual or severely limited activities and interests.
My students do best in an environment that is structured and routine based. They are amazing little learners. To see the world through their eyes is such a special thing.
My students are requesting a classroom iPad to incorporate our blended learning programs into our classroom. At our school we use technology programs including ST Math and Accelerated Reader to supplement our curriculum. This classroom iPad will also be used for our behavior management system, Classroom Dojo. Having an iPad will let us travel with the iPad and continue to recognize positive behavior outside of the classroom. This classroom iPad will also allow myself to monitor and assess my students through out the day. My goal is to have a 1 to 1 ratio of technology to students so each student can work on their goals daily. We are almost there, and this iPad will fulfill our goal!!
