My Students

My class consists of 13 wonderful students with varying degrees of Autism. Some struggle with communication skills, others have processing skills, and all of them have social skills deficits. One thing that all of my students need is the opportunity to participate in STEM activities in a classroom setting. Many of my students enjoy learning via tablet or computer form. The challenge that they face is the distraction from their education due to wires touching their faces and necks.

Technology is the future, and the ability to participate using technology is paramount for students with Autism.

Providing wireless headphones is another way of removing a barrier to accessing technology. My students are learning skills for the jobs of tomorrow. Many of these jobs are technology related. I believe that these headphones will help me to provide a richer educational experience and prepare my students for their future as contributing adult members of society.

My Project

My students with Autism enjoy participating in educational activities that involve technology. Unfortunately, many of them struggle with focusing on their work due to electronic cords hanging down from their traditional plug in headphones. In order to combat these distractions, many students with Autism resort to chewing on the cords.

My student's safety is my greatest concern.

Giving the students with Autism wireless headphones will remove the danger of chewing on the cords, and will help them focus on the learning portion of the activity. I want to encourage continued STEM activities for my class, and fear that the wired headphones are creating a barrier to technology for my students.
