Color Away!!!

My students need a color printer and toner due to their communication limitations. I use a color printer to print books, symbol pages, and communication books.

My Students

I love the special needs students I work with. My students are non-verbal. To make materials come alive it is important that I have a color printer to use.

I have nine students who all are in wheelchairs.

My students are non-verbal and have very limited abilities with their hands. My students have many health issues. To help my students with their progress, I need a color printer that will engage them. My students use symbol images for words, communication devices, and for books.

My Project

My students are non-verbal, wheelchair bound, visual and hearing conditions, and very limited fine motor skills. My students have extremely short attention spans. It is crucial for my students to be as engaged as possible. I am requesting a color printer to make materials I print for them come alive. At the present time, all I have is a black and white printer. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A color printer would make a positive impact on my students.

It will make materials we use in class come alive. At the present time, all I have is a black-and-white printer. My students faithfully come to school every day in spite of their many ailments. The students are always positive and a joy to be with.
