Help My Students With Moderate/Severe Disabilities Be Tech Savvy!

My students need iPads to improve their reading, writing, and math skills in class.

My Students

My students with moderate to severe disabilities are hard working, sweet, and enthusiastic young adults. Their disabilities range from down syndrome, autism, mental retardation, cerebral palsy, and/or multiple health impairments. Their ages range from 18-22 years.

My students go to a vocational center and are on an alternate life skills curriculum.

They are taking the Buildings and Grounds strand to expose them to skills for jobs as a plant manager's assistants when they graduate with their certificates of completion. They volunteer on and off campus at various job sites to obtain real life job experiences. We are a Title I school and most of my students qualify for the free lunch program.

My Project

Currently, LAUSD gives me 5 iPads and my students have to share the iPads. It slows down their learning experience because they can't move at their own pace.

It would be wonderful for the students to each have an iPad and utilize the educational programs available, such as working on functional math skills, identifying coins and bills or becoming a cashier and making change at a fast food restaurant.

There is also a reading program where students can read based on their level and pacing to improve functional life skills lessons such as conflict resolution, employment in various fields, etc. There is also a writing component where students learn emergency survival words to create sentences and essays for health and safety reasons.

Also, students with no communication skills use the iPad to talk to peers. My future goal is to get students on Skype so they can communicate with peers at other vocational training programs at other schools. I know this is a costly request but now you have the wish list for my class. Please make our dreams come true!
