Please Define

Help my students increase their vocabulary with these child-friendly​ dictionaries.

My Students

Curious, imaginative, fun-loving, creative: these are just some of the words I'd use to describe my new group of students. My classroom is made up of eight smart and endearing young people diagnosed with Autism. We are located in a low-income school where I need to buy most of my own supplies. An autism classroom is not run in the traditional way.

My students require a much more individualized and specialized way of learning.

They learn through hands-on materials and visuals. When provided with this type of learning environment, my students can learn and excel! But first, we need some basic supplies to keep our classroom running smoothly!

My Project

The students in my special education program are faced with language-based disabilities. When they look up vocabulary words in the dictionary, they have a hard time interpreting the definition.

I learned about these dictionaries through some research of my own.

After further investigation, I was very impressed with the reviews that it received. Other educators have reported that the words are easy to find and the definitions are comprehensible. The students will have access to resources that will allow them to complete work independently. With the dictionary, the students will be able to increase their vocabulary. This resource will allow my students to be successful in the classroom.

Not only will it have a positive impact on their class work, it will also have a positive impact on their self-confidence because the students will be able to do the same work as their non-disabled peers.
