Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach 11-14 -year olds with a diagnosis of Autism or Intellectual Disability. We are a self-contained Special Education school located in Queens, NY. Half of my class is non-verbal and have limited motor skills and therefore have difficulty writing.

My students' abilities vary and need many opportunities and activities to practice skills.

They enjoy engaging with the SMART Board, playing educational games and practicing reading and math skills. My students are eager to learn and therefore require multiple avenues to learn the content being taught.

My Project

My students will use the tablets throughout the school day. They will be able to use them during class lesson/activities to access the internet and videos to help them learn about the topic being taught.

Tablets are engaging and motivating.

For my students who cannot read, they can have stories read to them (audio books). The headphones will allow for students to be able to hear the videos and stories without disrupting other students. The tablets will also be used as an intensive throughout the day for completing work. My students use a First/Then Board to help them stay on task/complete a task (First matching letter game, then tablet). For some of my students, the use of the tablet at the end of the day to listen to music or play a game is a motivating factor for them to follow directions and do their work throughout the day.
