My students are ages 3-5 in a full day PreK program for children with disabilities or learning delays. My students have various disabilities including Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Delays, and Language Impairments. For most of them it is the first time they are in school and this is an introduction to education for them. My main goal is to prepare my students for entering Kindergarten in the next 1-2 years. They are great kids with so many amazing skills and talents that we are learning everyday.
This iPad will provide my students with an opportunity to practice and learn pre-academic skills to prepare them for kindergarten in the next two years (for example: learning their numbers, letters, shapes, colors, and fine motor skills) as well as provide positive reinforcement for appropriate behavior during the school day. My students enjoy any technology they can get their hands on, but right now we just have a Smartboard in the room for them to use. This iPad will allow us to create an “iPad center” where my students will be able to make huge academic gains on a daily basis.
