My Students

I am a general education teacher and this year I have a student with down syndrome. She receives services but they are done using a “push-in” model to allow most of her time to be with her peers. Due to speech and cognitive delays, she has a hard time communicating. I am currently taking professional development in order to learn about using assistive technology in the classroom for her. Unfortunately, our school does not have the funds to purchase an iPad that would help her communicate at school. Her classmates have welcomed her with open arms, and it is so refreshing to see children accept others with differences. They are truly learning that we are all more alike than different.

My Project

This iPad will aid in communication for a student with down syndrome that has severe speech delays. She becomes frustrated when she can’t communicate her wants and needs. She is so much to say, and we are going to use choice boards, fringe boards, and different apps to make this possible as she continues to gain more vocabulary. This will also benefit her peers who will then be able to communicate with her as well. This student is also unable to manipulate a mouse and, unfortunately, most of our school computers require this. She will be able to use the touch screen with more success.
