Ms. De Jesus from Bronx NY is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Technology To Enhance Language Skills

My students need iPad minis to use features such as text to speech, digital worksheets, educational websites and apps. These can enhance auditory processing, discrimination, articulation, phonics and other areas affecting language, speech, and semantics.

My Students

My students vary from K to 5th grade but are mainly K to 1st graders. They have various delays or disorders including but not limited to language, articulation, Autism, intellectual, hearing, phonological, and/or learning challenges.

Their learning capacity grows each time they are introduced with motivational and dynamic tools.

As long as they are set up for success and know the best is expected we sit back and wait for them to amaze us by surpassing our expectations. They’re awesome.

My Project

Children’s attention are greatly enhanced with a multi sensory approach. The use of an iPad mini allows for dynamic representation of this approach as various speech and language areas are addressed.

A speech generated device can increase attention, maintain interest and expand understanding in any group setting.

There are many ways the device can grow with the students addressing their numerous goals along with motivating children with behavioral challenges, language delays, physical restraints and resistance in using conventional school supplies. It an effectively save their work, provide appropriate visual feedback as well as a way for them to self monitor speech productions.
