Meeting the Different Needs of Each Child

My Project

My students are super special, these students all have a severe disability that gets in the way of learning. All of my students are very different from one another and all need different things to meet their needs. Each student learns in a different way and each student has a different way of completing work.

These items will help my students get their needs met, so they can continue to put their disability aside and learn.

These students are just like you and I, the students know that they have to complete their work before they can have a break and play. Some of the items are for the students to continue working and some of the items are for the students to play after working. The "Abilitations Inflatable PeaPod" is for when the students are over stimulated or just need to relax after working hard, they can have the compression of the pod to relax and calm the stimulations.

I love these students, they will always put a smile on your face before getting to know them.
