My students need an iPad mini and the supporting accessories to keep it safe.
I work in classrooms for students with Autism. In order to promote more efficient skill development, the students benefit from the use of iPads for teaching programs, data collection, and free time activities.
The students I work with have Autism and/ or other developmental disabilities.
Some of the students are non-verbal, but most of them have some language abilities. The students I work with thrive on structure and routine in their days and benefit hugely from the use of reinforcement to promote social and positive behaviors.
The school where I work is a family like community where everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand.
The students that I work with will be using the iPads as a means of communication and/ or skills development. Because many people with Autism are visual learners, the pad provides a wonderful means of presenting information in a manner that the students are able to comprehend and benefit from.
The iPads will change my students lives for the better because they will have access to quality materials and state of the art applications in order to access different learning mediums.
Many of the students with whom I work have difficulty with fine motor manipulation and typing and the iPad provides them the opportunity to swipe on the screen or use voice activation as needed.
