iPad to Help Students with Autism Communicate

My students need an iPad to communicate their needs and wants in my classroom.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom is one that is highly structured and full of many learning opportunities. My students are transitioning constantly from activity to activity and are being exposed to a variety of differentiated academic tasks.

I have a class of 6 students who are diagnosed as having Autism spectrum disorders.

They vary in ability especially in their language skills. Some students are non-verbal while others are completely verbal. Those who are non-verbal have a hard time communicating their wants and needs throughout the busy academic day.

My Project

My students will use the iPad to communicate their wants and needs throughout the school day. This will especially help aid the transitioning process from the hectic schedule these children are exposed to. They will be able to participate in lessons when questions are asked verbally by communicating with the iPad. Essentially my students will be more able to participate in all aspects of a school day by using the iPad as their voice.

Any donation whether big or small will be making a huge impact not only on my students' lives but on mine as well.

To be able to understand each other is a huge component in the learning process. I would love for my students to reach their full potential and with help from the iPad, I believe they can!
