My students need twenty-four Hearing Protectors.
I work in a classroom with twenty-five students, several of which have special needs. There are at least two teachers working with students in small groups at all times, with the possibility of more joining, depending on the subject. We believe in an inclusive classroom where all children can learn.
The students I have feel the desire and the need to be successful both in and outside the classroom.
My goal as a teacher is to teach them to be successful using tools and strategies they can carry with them to future grades. We live in a small town where the children have all grown up together. This is both a blessing and a curse within the classroom setting because it definitely contributes to the noise. Their need to feel successful and included is strong, both in and outside the classroom.
Some examples of where my students may need to use these headphones are the school cafeteria, school wide assemblies, gym class, rooms with echoes, situations where multiple conversations are being held, etc. They also reduce the impact of loud noises such as fire drills. Students can also wear them to muffle sound when it’s time to concentrate within the classroom setting. As I stated earlier there are twenty-five students, several of which have special needs. Instead of having those students leave the classroom, we invite the service provider to join our classroom to provide the service. The noise canceling headphones allow us to continue our work regardless of what professionals are in the classroom working with other students. Another example is children with Autism or Auditory Processing Disorder often have a hard time with noise. Background noise is a constant nuisance and causes major difficulty when it comes to processing information and sorting the important from the unimportant.
It is for these reasons that noise reducing headphones or earmuffs can come in very handy in loud spaces.
Headphones can lower the overall decibel rate of background noise while still allowing your child to hear someone speaking to them. These headphones will help create a safe space for students to learn both with and without special needs.Read More
