Enabling All Access To Literature

My students need 5 tablets to share between my ten special needs students allows them to access audiobooks and enlarged print.

My Students

They would understand if they could see the print. They would comprehend if they could hear it being read. I have ten special needs students who are more than willing to read literature, but struggle with limited vision, or need the material read aloud to them.

These students attend an inner city school in Georgia with a very high special needs population.

They are sweet, hard working seventh graders who want to fit in and be able to participate in class discussions, but they are still reading the material while everyone else is discussing. There are ten special needs children in this particular class and these tools would allow them access to the material, participate in the class, as well as turn in their worker quicker.

My Project

Our auditory vocabulary is higher than our written vocabulary, so when a child hears a story being read to them, they are more likely to comprehend it and absorb the meat of the story. The Noria Android tablet has the capability to read stories aloud to the students, enlarge the font, for those who need it, annotate the text and make comments on the text for participation in class discussions. These tools will also allow the students to submit their work digitally which alleviates some of the fine motor skill issues these young people have. These five Noria Android tablets will enable these students to have access to literature, participate in projects and discussions in class, and allow them to create presentations without their disabilities being a hindrance.

I want every child in my class to grow and succeed in life, special needs or not!

These seventh graders have struggled their whole school career. Will they still struggle? Yes, but these tools will make their learning a bit more accessible to them.
