My Students

As a Speech/Language Pathologist with Chicago Public Schools in the Pilsen neighborhood, many of my students are bilingual and come from low income homes. Together, we work on a wide range of Speech and Language skills and tackle a wide range of needs from mild speech sound disorders to severe communication needs due to developmental delays, learning disabilities, hearing loss, and/or Autism. My students are all amazing individuals and have such high potential but need access to specialized materials to help them learn.

My Project

While not all of these materials will be used for the same purpose, they will all help me to develop new materials and facilitate better learning for my students. The lamination sheets, velcro, and rings will be used to create interactive books for my preschoolers and students with low language skills in order to encourage hands-on learning and active participation while reading. The highlighters will be used while working on reading tasks and writing to draw attention to a target word or sound or provide lines to trace for my struggling writers.

The wiggle cushions that I received during a previous project were a huge hit, but now I need more!

While working with my larger groups, I do not have enough for everyone and it often leads to arguments and pouting. More of these cushions will help us remain focused on the task while providing the students that need the freedom to move an opportunity to get out their wiggles! They even help ME focus on some days!
