Bringing the World to Life for My Students With Autism

My students need a Electromagnetic Interactive Whiteboard to bring the world around them to life.

My Students

I am a first year teacher in a Special Education Preschool teaching a class of students on the Autism Spectrum. Most of my students are non-verbal, and for most of them, my classroom is their first introduction to school.

I was born with a physical disability, which I feel gives me a unique connection to my students.

Having been through it myself, I know that the journey through Special Education can be arduous at times, but it is my hope to be able to teach my students to be proud of their disabilities.

My Project

This Electromagnetic Interactive Whiteboard would be life changing for my students. For any student, bringing curriculum to life and making it interactive and engaging is critical, but it is even more critical for students on the Autism Spectrum.

This board would allow me to engage my students through songs, videos, and games, and would not only allow me to deliver curriculum but would give my students opportunities to practice vital social skills like turn-taking.

Many of my students come from low-income families, and this board would also give those students access to the world that they may not have access to otherwise.

I would use this board during our daily "morning meeting" in my classroom as a way for my students to interact with and manipulate a daily calendar and listen to and learn songs related to our rotating classroom themes throughout the year.
