My Students

Our students are children with special needs. Their primary disability is autism. Many of them have secondary disabilities that range from speech impairments to intellectual disabilities. They live in a low socioeconomic area. Many are second language learners as well. The school they attend is highly supported, but with limited resources, it is difficult to provide everything.

These students have very high needs, and they often go without critical resources.

They thrive in an environment that is supported with visuals to explain what something is in a way they understand. Some also use visuals to communicate.

My Project

It has been a difficult year for my students. We experienced a serious setback with Hurricane Harvey, and now many students on our campus are being plagued by illness. The social and academic learning of my students with autism has taken a huge hit.

It is my plan to utilize these iPads to help my students close the gaps in their learning when they are in their general education classes.

The students require many accommodations and a different presentation of materials at times, and the iPads put many resources in the palms of our hands that allow us to do that.

It is not just their academic learning that will benefit. I have found many social apps and websites that I would love to share with my students to help improve their relationships with their peers. Please help me bring these resources to my students.
