My Students

Many of my students are coming to kindergarten as first time hearing aid users and have had no early intervention to develop language and foundational skills essential for kindergarten.

In school, the students are taught using an auditory and oral approach which teaches the children to use hearing and speech to develop spoken language for communication and learning.

Due to the fact that they were late identified as being deaf or hard of hearing (some students at close to 4 years old), they have an extremely limited vocabulary and struggle to communicate.

In addition to their physical, emotional, and learning challenges, many of my students live in poverty. My students often lack access to resources at home; therefore, we would like to provide opportunities and the tools necessary for them to learn and be successful at our school.

My Project

The laptop that I am currently using for distance learning is very outdated so I currently do not have a laptop that works to help me reach my students. Because my students are so young, they benefit from visual supports, songs, and lessons with lots of colors to keep things interesting. They also require the support of multiple staff members in each session to keep them engaged. I am requesting a new Lenovo laptop so that my students can see lessons and activities more clearly and so I am able to support them in their virtual classroom experience. This will also assist in the classroom where I can support them with skills.
