Learning Through Play: Support Students with Multiple Disabilities!

Help me give my students classroom tools that they can engage in - such as the All That Glitters enabling device, or Go Go Hot Wheels switch-adapted race track - while developing their functional communication and adaptive skills.

My Students

Our elementary school is a Title I school. It is a center for many special education programs in the city, including the vision program and a medically fragile program.

My students are receiving special education services to support their communication skills.

The vision program for the district is based at our school, and many of my students have vision impairments that require adapted materials to support their learning. Students in both the preschool medically fragile program and the K-5 medically fragile program often have a range of complex needs impacting their abilities to interact with and learn from typical classroom tools.

My Project

For many young students with multiple disabilities, typical learning tools are simply not accessible. Several of my students have cortical visual impairment (CVI) or other vision impairments, and learning tools that light up, vibrate, or make noise are ideal.

My students are learning to use alternative methods (such as switches) to express their needs - and they need engaging learning tools to help build these skills!

Tools such as the All That Glitters sensory center will support students learning to reach or swipe. The Go Go Hot Wheels switch-adapted racetrack will be a motivating tool for older students in the medically fragile program. The Musical Swirl Art and the light-up, switch-activated Charley Chameleon will be perfect for students learning to orient toward light and/or sound sources.
