Technology for Pre-K Students With Autism

My students need a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 to support learning. Using the tablets in my classroom allows me to provide these supports in different ways.

My Students

Always Unique Totally Intelligent Sometimes Mysterious This describes every one of my students! They are all unique in their own way. Their way of learning is also very unique and sometimes mysterious.

My classroom is made up of 3-5 years old students with autism.

Some of them are able to verbally communicate and some of them are nonverbal. We use many visual supports and interactive activities to engage our students throughout the day. My class is a self-contained class at a regular, public, elementary school.

My Project

My students, like many students with autism, have difficulty communicating their wants and needs and struggle with social interactions. Having a portable device with the capabilities of a computer can change the way my students learn and communicate. My students that struggle with communication would be able to use the programs and apps on the tablet to communicate with picture programs and word processors. The ability of the touch screen reduces the fine motor difficulties that make using a keyboard and mouse hard. We could use interactive programs and apps throughout the day for all areas in the classroom.

This project is so important to me because it would provide just one more way that I could engage my students and help them express themselves.

Each child is so unique that it is difficult to find exactly what works for every student. One of these tablets could be what works for one of my students. It could make all the difference in the world!
