My Students

Students spend time in my resource room for specially designed instruction in a small group setting throughout the school day. I serve students in special education kindergarten through first grade with a range of disabilities including developmental delays, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, mild mental disabilities, specific learning disabilities and sensory processing disorders. Many students also are ELL/ESL with first languages including Spanish and Russian.

Many of my students come from families whose incomes fall below the national poverty line.

Their families struggle to provide basic needs, and purchasing educational materials is not within their budget. For many of these children, school is the first time they have been exposed to reading, math, and writing. My students struggle in areas of basic reading, reading comprehension, math computation and reasoning and social and adaptive skills.

My Project

This project is requesting a Nugget multi-positioning couch set. We need this couch to replace our flat and worn out bean bags chairs.

This couch will be used in our Moderate and Severe Disabilities classroom where students require an area for rest each day and when they may be feeling unwell.

The design of the couch allow us to position students in a variety of ways for their comfort and will decrease pressure on parts of their bodies that are prone to breakdown. This project will not only increase student comfort but also improve their health while protecting them from injury when resting.
