I teach a special education class that consists of 8 students all diagnosed with Autism. Teaching my students can be quite a challenge, since every child is unique and different in their needs and abilities. Teaching my students with Autism requires a lot of planning and a vast amount of materials in order to diligently meet the needs of every child.
My students range from Kindergarten to 1st grade.
My students have mild to severe learning disabilities, language delays, and some have emotional and behavioral difficulties. The majority of my students come from a low income community. In addition, some children also come from homes in which English is not their first or primary spoken language at home.
My students need multimedia headsets for their technology devices. My classroom is not run like most traditional classrooms. We are constantly working with children in centers and small groups throughout the day. Our class relies heavily on technology. Each student has their own reading programs which requires daily use of tablets and desktop computers each day. Each student is required to complete at least 15 minutes of technology time each day. By having these headsets, I can ensure that technology time is being well spent.
Currently the headsets that we are using are falling apart and many of them no longer work.
Having new headsets will eliminate the distractions of having multiple loud programs going on at once. In addition, each student will be able to work quietly using their devices without having to be disrupted by all the noise and distractions.
