My Students

Special needs students from a low-income neighborhood in the South Bronx, New York receive therapy services in the local public school. We serve students in Pre-K through 5th grade.

My students have impairments with balance, motor coordination, muscle weakness, and delays in visual perceptual skills to name a few.

Our students with various diagnoses including autism, ADHD, sensory processing disorder, and apraxia, require occupational, physical, and speech therapy services to help them access the school environment and curriculum to their fullest potential.

Due to COVID-19, the NYC DOE has implemented remote learning and tele-therapy services which will continue for the remainder of the school year and possibly longer. My student's have very limited resources at home. We have been doing our best using technology, however, it is imperative that they continue to develop their muscles through use of hands-on tools and supplies such as scissors, crayons, pipe cleaners, and play-doh.

My Project

Asking our parents to purchase supplies would present a great financial burden. A donation of these items would allow my student the ability to work on hand strengthening, manual dexterity, hand-eye coordination, and visual perceptual skills through various multi-sensory activities. He will be able to use materials that he currently does not have, including play-doh, play-doh alphabet cutters, fine motor tongs, play foam numbers, a pair of child scissors, tissue paper, construction paper, dot paints, and glue. These basic supplies would have a large impact in this special child's life.
