Help me give my students Kindle Fires to reinforce learning and bring about spontaneous speech!
I service ten students who have autism. Six out of ten of them use language to communicate, but only when prompted too. We use intensive teaching practices to promote language. In addition, we use a verbal program called manding to promote spontaneous requests.
Every day, my students come to school anxious about what their day might bring but are positively excited to receive their motivators at work.
My students are reinforced at a varied ratio which promotes strong learning. In five minutes with much reinforcement, they can respond to 50 or more questions.
Each student receives reinforcement if they respond to prompts to build language. With 10 students, we prefer to motivate with sensory tools that create positive interactions, but sometimes it is easier to reinforce using computers, tablets, or videos. Using intensive teaching and manding instructional strategies requires teachers to work individually with each student.
Please help motivate my students with autism to build language skills with tablets that contain fun learning apps and games.
With 10 students, having multiple portable devices will make a difference in motivating learning. It can build language, reading, computation, writing, and social interactions.
Each student has their individual session with a teacher and after a few minutes receives an opportunity for reinforcement. Having a tablet at each table will provide ample opportunities to promote language, spontaneous speech and learning.
