Students in Autistic Support Class Will Work For IPad!

My students need an iPad to use as reinforcement for working hard at school.

My Students

Our class is faced with the daily challenges of being individuals diagnosed with autism. Working for an iPad will give us incentives to keep us going! It will also help us build skills to be a better learner, worker, and participant.

Our class of second through fifth graders at an elementary school in Pennsylvania is wonderful.

One student loves dump trucks and art is his favorite subject at school. One loves nature and science is his favorite subject. Another loves Thomas the Train and Angry Birds and math is his best subject. One loves superheroes and shines with reading and spelling. We are all unique individuals working for an item that we can all enjoy. Having an iPad, that all of our students find interesting, will create new opportunities for social interactions, which is something that all of our students have difficulty with.

My Project

This project will have a positive impact every school day. It will reward the students for completing school work, while it increases their knowledge and fine motor skills. By having the iPad as something the students can earn throughout the day, it will positively impact every subject area. The iPad can also be used to reinforce positive behavior choices, which is something our students often struggle with. It is important to be able to earn a reward that is meaningful to the students. Each of our students have expressed a high level of interest in getting an ipad for our classroom.

Technology is such a powerful tool for any child.

For our students it is a powerful motivation to face academic and social challenges. It will give the students a desired item to work for on a daily basis.
