My Students

My students are in an Intense Intervention classroom. I work in a classroom with students that range from 6th grade to 8th grade. They are not learning at their age level, but a much lower ability. I have students that are labeled with Mild, Moderate, and Severe Cognitive Disabilities, Physical Disabilities, Hearing Impairments, Autism, and Down Syndrome. As you see, this presents a wide variety of needs and accommodation requirements.

Our students use a wide range of skills and equipment throughout the day.

They are working on a variety of skills to increase their independence as individuals. By teaching these skills, the plan is to increase each students’ ability to go out and apply for a job that will make minimum wage or more. By teaching my students how to read, use money, and utilize job skills, I am increasing their employability when they have finished their educations. In teaching independent living skills, I am increasing my students’ chances of living independently or with a roommate. Living as fully functioning members of society is the end goal for all students with special needs. Being able to utilize sturdy headphones and keyboards will increase their success inside and outside of school.

My Project

An Intense Intervention classroom teaches the same lesson multiple times in a specific way, to small groups of students. They are given opportunities to use their learned skills in the school building and in the community. Some students need adaptations and accommodations to complete the skills we are teaching. The goal is independence in ALL tasks.

To gain independence, some of my students need sturdier headphones and keyboards that plug into their iPads.

This will decrease their reliance upon others to do their work, because they are able to complete their work with less adult intervention and more independence. Using earbuds with some of my students would be difficult because they cannot manipulate them. The sturdy, over the ear headphones will be more comfortable for all my students, as well as the students with hearing impairments. They will be able to put them on and take them off without assistance.

Other students are not able to use the keyboard on their iPad. It is too sensitive, too small, and the keys do not have enough separation between them for my students with Physical Disabilities. Using the Califone keyboards will decrease their frustration while increasing their independence.
