iPad for Improving the Education of Learners

My students need an iPad in order to enhance their learning in the subject areas of reading, math and writing.

My Students

Technology builds an enormous level of self-confidence. It is through exploration and learning that one could take their education to the next level.

The children I mostly work with currently are those who are on the Autism Spectrum.

These children often are in need of an education that goes beyond just your traditional reading, writing and math. My students require improvement in social skills as well.

My Project

Many of my students require access to technology to complete assignments. At the same time, they are need technology that provides use of social stories, visual schedules, and reward/consequence boards. Although paper is often used to fulfill these needs, use of an iPad would make a considerable difference. Not only would I be saving trees and helping the environment, I would be providing my kids to a gateway of apps that would cover their social needs as well as finding success with their academic difficulties.

Please consider giving to my project.

Research has shown that when children on the spectrum are given access to technology, it significantly improves their education and well being.
