My Students

I work in an urban setting teaching three and four year old students with Autism. All of our students are eligible for free lunch and breakfast. They come from diverse homes and face many challenges.

Coming to work each day is so rewarding!

The growth in my students inspires and motivates me to persevere, even when things get difficult. It is the little things, like a child making eye contact, or asking for help, or doing a task independently that makes what I do so worthwhile.

The challenge is in reaching each child where they are and moving them forward. It involves finding the right tools to match each child's needs, as each child is so different and responds to different materials and sensory input. Thus, it takes varied materials, activities, and approaches to get the job done!

My Project

Recently, my students have shown great interest in the one iPad we have available to us. Having to wait for a turn can be quite difficult for most of these young learners. Having another device will not only reduce the anxiety associated with having to wait, but could quite possibly open new doors for many of my learners. This iPad will allow my young learners to participate in learning in a digital way. It will provide easy access to a touchscreen and a multitude of learning applications. It will not only allow my students to communicate, but also to learn in an engaging and interactive manner. Because digital devices are so engaging, they often increase on-task behavior and attention, thus making learning more appealing and plausible. Any support with this project would be most appreciated!
