Soaking up Knowledge in Speech and Language

My students need an iPad to be able to access speech and language applications to meet their varying needs.

My Students

I teach a group of students who love fun and engaging therapy materials to practice their speech and language skills. I feel blessed when my students eagerly ask what we will be learning as they enter the Speech Room.

My classroom serves students with speech and language impairments, intellectual disabilities, autism spectrum disorder, and specific learning disabilities.

One thing I know for "shore" about my students is they love "soaking up knowledge," especially if technology is involved. Our Florida school is Title I with more than 80% of the students receiving free or reduced-price lunch, and 100% of the students receiving complimentary breakfast. I have 15 students who are excited to learn and meet their goals.

My Project

One area my students struggle the most with is listening and speaking. As a speech-language pathologist working at the elementary level, I know my students have varying needs and abilities, which are difficult to address without the use of technology. I am requesting one iPad and one case so that I can use numerous articulation and language applications with my students. My students will be challenged by interacting with engaging applications that can be accessed on the iPad. This will offer a greater diversity of materials to meet the needs of all my learners. In my classroom, we practice articulation and language skills daily.

The addition of technology would give my students a much greater range and variety of learning opportunities.

In order to build a foundation for college and a career, my students need ample opportunities to improve their listening and speaking skills.
