My Students

Have you ever been in another country where they spoke another language and no one could understand you? This is how my students feel every day. Because of their disability of autism, they have trouble communicating their wants and needs. Having an iPad will help close this gap.

My particular class is in a 6:1:1 setting.

Meaning I have 6 kids, 1 teacher, and 1 para. They all have autism but vary in instruction as well as grades(K to 2). ​They are great students who are eager to learn despite their disabilities.

My Project

My students will use the tablet for group time as well as​ individual time. I use the communication application in all of my group lessons. I upload pictures of the vocabulary words onto soundboard and have students find them. What I like about this app so much is that it has a voice output option. This helps the students make the connection to the picture and the word. This will later translate into using a communication board. Besides that app, there are many other great programs on the tablet like working on handwriting skills, math skills, and motivating games. This will help change my classroom drastically.

Instead of using picture symbols, they can now use technology that will later translate into a communication device.

This is extremely important for these students. They need to have a voice to help express their wants and needs.
