My Students

Can you imagine not being able to use your words to express your thoughts? Or not being able to follow classroom routines? Or not being able to control your frustration because you can't tell others what you want or need? This is the reality for many students with special needs.

My young students come to school ready to learn and have fun.

They all have different learning styles and ability levels; therefore, it's important to provide visual, auditory, and hands-on activities to meet their individual needs. My job as their classroom teacher is to provide them with opportunities and materials to help meet their individual needs, but due to limited school funds, it's often difficult to have these valuable materials and activities available.

My Project

The MeCorder Mini Video Recorder will allow my students to record themselves using their words to communicate or following classroom routines and then let them play it back so they can watch themselves. This will not only provide language opportunities but will also help improve their social and behavioral skills. The Talk Bar will provide my students opportunities to visually see and hear their school schedule which will help them prepare for daily transitions. It will also provide opportunities for choice making using pictures and recorded words.

The MeCorder Mini Video Recorder and Talk Bar will help my preschoolers learn and explore their daily routine and behavioral concepts through hands-on learning opportunities while teaching independence.
