My Students

My students are well mannered, hard-working, very helpful individuals with learning disabilities. They are all Autistic. Some of them are non-verbal, some need constant assistance staying on task, and some are auditory learners. I love the fact that they are willing to participate in activities and are deserving of many rewards. These students will attempt to do anything asked of them without hesitation. They try hard to solve problems and get the right answers to questions and loves to be praised.

My Project

The Autistic class at GES need technological assistance in the classroom to assist with assignments and learning disabilities. The class has students who are non-verbal, who are auditory and tactile learners. They can utilize tablets in the classroom to complete their News to You and Unique academic programs that are designed for students with special needs. The tablets can assist them during reading assignments, and answering comprehensive questions, and keeping up with current news. Utilizing tablets in the classroom will help the students gain independence by becoming computer savvy and technologically advanced. Our students would benefit greatly with tablets in our classroom.
