My Students

I am a speech Pathologist. My students for the most part, have a very difficult time communicating. I love that my students have a smile on their face and are willing to work harder than the average student just to make you understand their needs and wants. It's a child's human right to be able to communicate. My kids are loving and helpful to each other. There are those that start to demonstrate their frustrations through negative behaviors and this just makes me want to rush to their rescue and give them the means to communicate in order to have a voice in this big world. Education is demanding enough without having to over come communication deficits in the classroom, on the play ground, in the lunch room, and any other area of the school these students find themselves attempting to let others know what the need, what they want, what they need in life.

My Project

The Phonological Awareness Learning Puzzles and Touch & Read CVC Words Sentence Match will be used to teach students with Apraxia and other speech disorders to produce the correct sound in all parts of the word. This will help them communicate better and decrease their frustrations, leaving them more time to focus on the academic pressures of school. Students with speech and language deficits often need increased sensory input and tactile reinforcement to teach them speech objectives that may come easy or naturally for students without special needs.

The weighted fleece vest and sensory integration material will be used to help students calm themselves and focus on the task at hand, decreasing negative behaviors and increasing knowledge acquired in school.
