Hearing Impaired Student Needs a Laptop For Assignments
My students need a laptop which is accessible for those students who do not have access to a computer at home. At this time, this is for a particular hearing-impaired student who lives in a shelter.
The challenge my student faces is having a hearing loss, trying to get her assignments completed, living in a shelter, completing her four hour Adventa Learning Course (aventalearning.com), and completing high school. She's in eleventh grade and has many challenges to face.
The Performance Conservatory High School, where my student attends, is in Boston.
Most students receive breakfast and lunch at the school. They face many challenges such as single parent families, low socioeconomic status, low graduation rates, and poor self-esteem.
The student who needs a laptop is in a school where most students have a laptop but she doesn't. Her hearing loss, which is a moderate loss, also puts her in a disadvantage because she must struggle to hear what is being said all day long.
My student wants to graduate from high school, go on to college, and become an animation artist. She has potential, and having a laptop will help her fulfill this potential. Asking for ONE laptop will change her life! My student will be able to save, lookup, download, and complete assignments for her classes.
My student will be able to graduate from high school and make a difference in society by overcoming the odds she has stacked against her.
She is hearing impaired and lives in a shelter, which doesn't give her any privacy. She would like to own her own laptop, which will help her succeed!
