Ms. Kellie from Morgantown WV is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students their voice by supporting the use of the iPad as a speech generating device.
I am a speech language pathologist in a public school who works with non-verbal to verbally limited children. I want to give them the chance to make their voices heard.
Help me give my students a voice!
Give their parents the opportunity to hear I love you for the first time. Help their teachers be able to know they want a drink or need the bathroom. These children have so much to say, but their "voice" is locked inside them.
As part of my job working with these little ones, I have to evaluate their communication skills. As many of them are non-verbal or exhibit limited verbal expression, I am required to find alternative ways to assess their communication skills. Often , that means using low tech (pictures) to high tech speech generating devices to meet this requirement.
Use of the iPad and different voice output applications will give me the tools I need to help my students find their voice.
The iPad is a proven device to meet their needs at a reasonable price. Help me make this happen!
