Help me give my students the ability to use puzzles, puppets and durable laminated pictures to build language, keep their attention and enable them to participate in activities to gain functional communication skills.
Can you imagine not being able to communicate? To never be able to tell someone what you want, need or think? How you feel? This is the reality for most of the students I work with.
"Just because your child isn't communicating verbally, doesn't mean he/she isn't communicating" - Nicole Lilianthal
I am a Speech-Language Pathologist working with special needs students in self-contained programs. My students range from 3-11 years of age and have been diagnosed with Autism. As a Speech Language Pathologist, it is my job and my passion to help my students become effective communicators in the classroom. Most of the children I work with are not able to functionally communicate their most basic wants and needs, they do not speak or know how to show a socially acceptable way to communicate.
For ALL of my students, pictures are their only means of communication. The pictures become THEIR VOICE. By exchanging a picture, my students can tell their teachers (and parents) that they want chips not cookies. That they need to go to the bathroom. That they want to work for the train not Legos. Since the pictures are used multiple times a day, they MUST be laminated to be durable! If not, they become dirty, ripped and unusable by the end of the day.
With your contribution, my students will have a voice and NEVER be at a loss for words.
My students need a laminator, lamination sheets, Educational portable flannel board, and bright, noisy and interesting activities like puzzles and puppets to help meet their individualized communication needs.
Their pictures, their words, their voice will ALWAYS be accessible to them. Helping a child communicate is one of the BEST gifts you can give!
