Technology for Students with Special Needs Who Need Extra Love

My Students

Our classroom is an Integrated Co-Teaching class of 26 students having reached the maximum percentage of students with disabilities. Most of our students are from socioeconomically-challenged homes, and travel very far to come to our school; one student travels by taking the school bus for two hours one way. A handful of our children should wear glasses, but only one wears them regularly. We are a public school located at the borderline between Prospect Heights and Crown Heights.

We are in desperate need of technology to enable flipped curriculum and assistive technology for more students.

We would greatly benefit from these technological devices to improve our access to many digital platforms available including code.org, khanacademy, ixl.com, raz-kids, and Prodigy.

My Project

These tablets and headphones will enhance students’ learning by giving all students access to technology and STEM. They will strengthen the differentiation in our instruction by providing the students with special needs exactly what they need; we have a handful of learners who struggle to add and subtract within 10, do not know their letter-sounds, and/or are unable to identify Kindergarten sight words. The tablets will also give access to spelling and audio reading to our students with dyslexia. We also have learners who are academically on-grade level, but could benefit from doing code.org or Scratch Jr. We can flipped instruction and enrich students learning and work.

With these tablets, we are fighting the achievement gap for our students with disabilities.

Our students who have very challenging lives at home, will finally gain access to the academic apps that our school has, or that we have signed up for. On the back of our students’ Family Involvement Starts Here (FISH) folder are all of the students’ log-ins, but we can see only five students have ever actively used these academic enriching sites. By having these devices, our students will be able to play games that tackle their specific needed math skill, read books that are of their level as well as high-interest books, and engage in coding.
