My Students

My students are AMAZING!!! I teach in a specialized classroom for grades K - 5 with students who have been diagnosed across the spectrum of Autism, cerebral palsy, non- verbal, as well as intellectual disorders, behavioral disorders and more. I will have 12 kids full-time this year and along with serving another 3. My students love working on the iPad, whether it be for academic purposes or a fun reward time. They all struggle with being able to focus and headphones would help with that greatly.

My Project

My students love working on the iPads! Not only are they used for academics, they are used for rewarding good behavior and free choice.

Headphones would not only allow the student on the iPad to be able to focus easier, but also cut down on background noise for the rest of the class.

One of their centers is the iPad center and they are having a hard time focusing without headphones. We also use iPads for iStation testing and 1 on 1 instruction! Headphones would make for a perfect addition to the class for my students and my sanity!
