In Living Color

My students need a color printer and ink to provide exciting visuals to support their speech and language needs.

My Students

Have you ever sat through an activity/lesson/presentation and all the visuals were black and white? Not the most visually stimulating lesson I'm sure. So help my students see the world in "living color!"

My students are elementary students in pre-kindergarten to seventh grade.

They live in an inner city and attend a Title One school in Connecticut, where they receive free breakfast, snack and lunch. The students that I work with on a daily basis each have an Individualized Education Program (IEP) with goals to improve their speech and language skills. My students are happy to come to school and learn, and I work very hard to make learning fun!

My Project

My students have a range of speech and language impairments, many of whom require visual support when engaging in various academic, functional and/or social activities. Many of my students communicate and participate more effectively when provided visual supports (i.e., picture schedules, visual cues, graphic organizers). My students are concrete and inflexible in their thinking, and they benefit from visuals that best represent the actual item/object/action being discussed. Therefore, looking at a line drawing or black and white printout of a house, for example, does not provide the most salient connection for my students. Additionally, when describing an item's features, a color image provides greater details. This color printer will allow me to print color images (including photos) to incorporate into therapy sessions. With color images my students will be able to make connections to tangible items and better visualize actions; therefore, supporting their speech and language.

Students with speech and language impairments benefit from multi-sensory instruction.

They need to be able to see, touch, and/or hear an item/object/action to make a connection. Help me provide them the visuals. Color images will greatly improve their ability to make connections, describe attributes and make relevant associations. Give them the world in "living color!"
