My Students

"We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give." Winston Churchill You can give my students the gift of language. You purchase the ink and I will make games, books, and overlays for augmentative communication devices.

My students are 4 and 5 years of age.

They attend a special education class and look forward to blending opportunities with friends from the general education pre-k class. They are happy and wonderful! They give more than they will ever receive. Their favorite activities include center time with peers, listening to a story, art, and computer.

My Project

Ink is very expensive, and I am required to purchase it. I have already used 6 cartridges this year. I use my printer with a program called, Boardmaker, to create overlays for communication devices, that will allow my nonverbal students to make choices and identify theme related pictures. Theme related books, individualized picture schedules, labeled class equipment, vocabulary BINGO games and many other materials promote language development and increase vocabulary.

Give my students the gift of language.

Each created activity provides my students with increased opportunities to develop a functional communication system. Their is no greater gift than the gift of language.
