Speech Students Need a Printer and Ink

Help me give my students a LaserJet Pro printer, an ink cartridge, and coverage (in case the printer malfunctions) so that I can provide them with the appropriate modified materials to help them feel more successful while learning!

My Students

My speech room is considered to be a safe-haven, comfort zone, and resource room for students with various learning and language based disabilities. I strive to give the appropriate educational and emotional support to all students each day that I step foot into school building. I often modify curriculum materials based on individual needs and levels so that these students feel successful when learning about new topics. They feel excited when learning comes to life. Whether it's by acting, drawing, looking at pictures, increasing the font size or changing the text, changing the sentence structure, creating a graphic organizer, or by adding more color, my speech students always feel excited when they are able to learn and talk about a new topic. It is my goal to support each student in the way they need to be supported.

My Project

My students will benefit from a printer in the speech room because they require multiple graphic organizers, computer access that allows students with writing disabilities be able to type and print our their hard work, visuals, and modified curriculum materials that enable them to gain a better understanding of what they are learning in classrooms. AT the moment, most materials are handwritten. Your donations will make a big difference to these students, especially since many love to create powerpoint presentations and show them off. Some are even learning how to create their own graphic organizers through various programs. They will be so excited to have printer access.
