My Students

Hello, I am a speech and language pathologist that travels between three school buildings to meet the needs of my elementary students. Many of my students are grouped into 2-4 students to target their individualized goals.

As a speech and language pathologist, I work with a variety of students with a variety of needs to help each of them be successful in the classroom and in their academics.

With these needs come limitations on the materials the school district is able to provide teachers, often leading myself and the teachers around me to fund projects out of pocket. I strive to focus on individual student needs to increase their knowledge in their areas of impairments such as language and articulation, social skills, and functional communication.

With this, I would like to use an iPad to gather data, to use materials that are relevant to their needs and interests, and to make mixed needs groups (language/articulation/social) flow and be functional in the short amount of time allotted for therapy.

My Project

By providing funding for an iPad, my students will have an opportunity to learn how to use technology and applicable applications to increase knowledge for academics and functional language and articulation within the classroom. Each of my students have individual needs that can be met through group therapy, but the challenge is not providing therapy, it is using relevant resources to keep students focused and motivated to complete their work. With the help of an iPad, students will be motivated, focused, engaged, and active in their learning as well as help me, the speech and language pathologist, keep track of relevant data and progress for each of my students. This resource will allow me to save time in preparing for therapy and data collection, so that I can be in the classrooms more helping and supporting both teachers and students instead of prepping paper materials. The benefits will be noticed by parents, teachers, and peers when students are able to share their thoughts and ideas with one another.
