Ms. Ames from Roxbury MA is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Computer Needed for ASD Class

My students need a new classroom computer! We use programs such as Lexia as part of our reading curriculum, and we no longer have a classroom computer!

My Students

We are a lively group of 1st-3rd grade students all with a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Because ASD is such a spectrum, we learn in a spectrum of ways and have a spectrum of needs within our class.

Our students learn in a variety of ways.

Sometimes, our students need to take breaks with sensory toys/activities before they can return to their academic work. Other times, the traditional ways of teaching students aren't successful, and they need more hands-on approaches! Furthermore, sometimes students need a bit more structure when learning. When teaching is tailored to each child, each child can reach their goals.

My Project

We are hoping for a new classroom computer! Our classroom is an ABA based classroom that consists of ten lively students with a diagnosis of Autism. The students adore using a computer and love websites such as Starfall, ABC Mouse and Speakaboos! We also use the computer to practice typing skills (many of our students prefer typing over writing), and for our reading curriculum using Lexia!

We are seeking a new classroom laptop!

Unfortunately, our old classroom computer was broken, and we greatly miss it! We are hoping to replace our computer station and could use your help! The new laptop will be shared amongst all students and each student will have their own scheduled Computer Time. Thank you for supporting us!
