Light for Children With Vision Impairments

Help me give my students access to toys and sensory input. The switch activated light, and other light up toys help my students with vision impairments see what they are playing with and get more visual stimulation.

My Students

My students have a wide range of abilities and challenges. I have students that range from kindergarten to 6th grade. My students have a variety of of physical and cognitive disabilities (cerebral palsy, down syndrome, etc.) that make school a little extra challenging for them, but they are just normal kids who crave opportunities to learn and grow.

My students are capable of so much.

They have a few extra stumbling blocks in their way, but I truly believe that with the right tools they can overcome those obstacles.

There are many resources that my students will need to develop their academic, social, and behavioral skills that I don't have access to. I want to provide them with a positive learning environment equipped with the tools they need to thrive in school.

My Project

There are several students in my class with visual impairments and motor disabilities. It's difficult for these students to access play time or sensory input that their peers can access independently. The switch activated disco light can help my students access that stimulation independently. That, as well as the other light up toys, will help them realize that they can access play and sensory input without just waiting around for an adult to provide it.

Independence is so important, even for students with disabilities.

These light up toys and sensory toys will help my students develop more independence. Binders, page protectors, and other classroom items will help my students display their work and take pride in the things they create.
