Mrs. Sonya from Bossier City LA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students card-stock, laminating pouches, and velcro to help them succeed in class.
My students are completely amazing, and teach me every day! They vary in ages and grades. They bravely fight to overcome sensory issues, learning difficulties, and disabilities. They have communication barriers-for most are non-verbal, while the others fight to get their voice out. A large part of our day is learning how to communicate as we work on speech and literacy. They have captured my heart with their love for others, and their desire to learn. They just learn differently, and different is great!
Nonverbal individuals with autism have much to contribute to society and can live fulfilling lives with the help of visual supports. Visual supports can include pictures and groups of pictures that your child can use to indicate requests, thoughts, and replies. For this reason, I am asking for card-stock, laminating paper, and Velcro. The laminating paper will help with durability, and the Velcro will aid with consistency. This way when the students ask, or answer someone they can pull their response off the communication board and hand it to you, and then replace it back in the same place so they know where to find their voice.
And even though every person with autism can learn to communicate, it’s not always through spoken language.
Thank you for giving our voice a chance to be heard.
