My Students

I am a speech-language pathologist and I service students with a wide variety of needs. I currently service 50-60 students weekly. I have students with delays in articulation (speech sounds), receptive (what we understand) language, expressive (what we say) language, and fluency (stuttering). Each student I service is working on a unique set of goals that require specialized instruction weekly.

My goal is for students to communicate with confidence despite any disability they may have.

My project is requesting materials to assist students in learning to follow directions, increase classification skills, learn and understand spatial concepts, increase vocabulary, boost reading comprehension, practice articulation, and build important receptive and expressive language skills. I work in a Title 1 school and many of my students have limited support and/or resources at home to help increase their speech and language skills.

My Project

My students would greatly benefit from materials that can increase and improve the following skills: following directions, vocabulary, social interaction, reading comprehension, classification skills, sequencing, fluency, grammar, spatial concepts, qualitative/quantitative concepts, asking and answering questions, and articulation skills. A variety of games, books, and content specific instructional materials are needed to assist in servicing my students.

"However it is done, communication is the key to human interaction." These supplies will increase the opportunities that my students have to practice their communication skills.

New supplies not only increase ways for skills to be targeted, but also boost student motivation to participate and improve their weaknesses.
