My Students

My students come to speech and language therapy to learn how to better communicate and interact with each other and the community around them. My students range preschool to post-graduate students. Many of my students are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders, neurological disorders, specific learning disabilities, and intellectual disabilities.

The main goal of my students l in speech-language therapy is to able to communicate their needs, thoughts and knowledge in school, at home and in their community.

They are working towards becoming more independent communicators. Many of my students have limited verbal expression and rely on visuals to help them communicate and participate in academic and social settings.

My Project

Students with language and communication difficulties rely on visuals to make connections with the words they are hearing. Visual supports help students be able to use those words to communicate their knowledge, opinions and needs and to be an active member of the community. Black and white images are hard for students to make connections with and attend to.

Providing my students visuals in color will help them acquire and use language with more success and independence.

Having access to a color printer and extra ink cartridges in my therapy room will allow easy access for the students to be able to see and use language-based visuals. They will be able to use these images to improve their language and communication skills. These color images will help my students to ask questions, participate in conversations and share their ideas.
