Help me help my kids =) to tap into their unique multiple intelligences.

The cost of laserjet printer is $572, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

As a middle school Special Education teacher of a self-contained class (I teach all of the academic subjects), I am constantly surprised and rewarded when I/we discover new ways students can express themselves through their strengths. Technology and the internet have particularly been helpful in my classroom by allowing my students to create neat writing pieces, generate artwork, do research, etc. The disabilities in my classroom range from moderate to severe learning disabilities (including many spectrums of dyslexia, autism, Asperger's Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy and behavioral/emotional disorders). For students lacking fine and/or gross motor control, using the computer can help them feel empowered and provide a sense of accomplishment. We have an iMac in the classroom. The students generate beautiful work on the computer, but do not have the capability to print their work out. In order for them to receive a finished, tangible product or even print out their research, I copy the files to diskette and print out the files at home. This can become quite costly considering that my 8th grade students need to complete 8th Grade Exit Projects in all of the academic subjects before graduating. A color printer in the classroom would be sincerely appreciated and well utilized. I would love for my students to feel the empowerment of pressing the print button and watching as their work unfolds from the printer with their very own eyes... this experience is still magical for even me! We would highly appreciate any donations/contributions toward our hope of receiving a printer! Thank You =)
