Toner Talks!

My students need toner and cardstock paper so that visual aids can be created for communication/language skills.

My Students

Our school has four self-contained classrooms for special needs students (K5-5th grade). A majority of these students receive speech-language services due to moderate or severe speech-language delays. Some use verbal communication, others require alternative modes of communication (such as symbols, pictures, and gestures). All students in our self-contained classrooms benefit from visual aids to follow directions, transition between activities, make lunch selections, express feelings, and answer questions presented in class. Each of these students has unique abilities that are rewarding to discover and cultivate.

My Project

I purchased a laser color printer. I use it to print communication boards and color materials for my students. I have now run out of toner.

My non-verbal students use colored communication boards to communicate basic wants and need at school, such as lunch/snack choices and when they use the bathroom.

Verbal and non-verbal students in our self-contained classrooms use colored picture symbols to answer general questions in class or to demonstrate knowledge of what was presented in class, such as "Who was the story about?" I wear colored picture symbols on my lanyard to communicate basic instructions such as "quiet," "sit," and "too loud." We use colored pictures to sequence and retell stories. Visual schedules with colored picture symbols are made so that students will know what activities they need to prepare for.

I am asking for assistance to replace the toner and to purchase some cardstock. The school supplies us with paper, but cardstock is preferred for some students due to increased durability. I laminate or place colored materials in sheet protectors so that I can use them multiple times. However, I continue to have a need to print more colored materials as student needs vary and vocabulary increases. I appreciate your help.
