My Students

My nonverbal students with moderate to severe disabilities are blessings and every small step forward shows a new mastery of skills they have worked hard to achieve. Everyday my students overcome communicative, social, cognitive and physical hurdles that show their diligence, courage, humor, perseverance and love. These students show so much strength through the challenges they are presented with and our school is in a county with one of the highest ACES (Adverse Childhood Experience Scale) scores in the state. 82% of our population in district is on free and reduced lunches and our district is currently facing a large budget cut. These students deserve the best and I refuse to let their disabilities, socioeconomic standing and/or geological location limit their access to a robust education. One that will target their functional life skills through technology, sensory supports, and other strategies required to meet their educational and everyday needs.

My Project

Our classroom is in needs for a few more iPads with shockproof covers to have a one-to-one adult staff to iPad ratio. This not only allows the staff to access motivational tools for our students, but it allows the staff to have access to the iPad to support students visual schedules for transitions, work completion, provide clear expectations and take data. The iTunes cards will allow us to download more applications that will target the students goals, provide personalized social stories, and make other necessary purchases.

I'm also requesting in this project the materials needed to set up a charging station that will hold the iPads with the cases still on.

This will allow for all the iPads to be charged at once with minimal labor, wires and mess. Along with organizing the iPads for charging, I'm also requesting some file boxes to keep file folders organized by student or subject based on need.
