Mrs. Higgs from Denver CO is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology for Autism Classroom

My students need a digital camera, color printer, ink, photo paper, and memory stick to access technology and visual resources in our classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am teaching in a special education classroom, specifically serving children with autism. This classroom is a center-based, self-contained classroom with students in 3rd and 4th grades. The students in my room are severely affected by autism, and are living in a high-needs community.

Our classroom is in need of a digital camera and a color printer with accessories, to support our students need for visual structure within the classroom. We do not have easy access to a color printer or a digital camera in our school due to lack of funding. Students with autism rely on visual structure within the classroom, without access to these things it is difficult to provide accurate and real-life stimuli.

It is important that our classroom has access to a printer and a digital camera to appropriately support the students with visual structures in the classroom. Access to this type of technology will increase their communication abilities and their knowledge of the world. Children with autism need to be exposed to many different learning tools in order for them to be able to generalize their learning in all academic areas.

Your donation will ensure that my students are able to access diverse and meaningful educational experiences. It is extremely important that we support the students diverse learning needs so they will be able to benefit from their education. Your help will make it possible for these students who battle autism to feel successful in the classroom environment.
