Most of my students have a low economic background and many do not know how to read or write...yet. :-) 95% of the population in the school is African American. My students are very enthusiastic about learning and want to succeed both in school and in life. The school that I am at has many supports for these students and the teachers enjoy pouring in to each of them.
My students have a wide range of disabilities and severities.
I work with students who have speech and language impaired, Autism, who are non-verbal, who have a specific learning disability and some have a behavioral/emotional disability.
My students will be using the iPad in order to engage in therapy activities. The iPad apps will allow them to practice their articulation by listening to the sound or word and then repeating it, learn their letters, and learn animal names and sounds. It will also allow them to learn many aspects of language such as reading comprehension, following directions, recalling information, identifying objects and categorizing objects just to name a few.
This iPad will give my students a fun way to learn by using educational games to work on their educational goals!
I want my students to feel successful and what better way to do that then by having fun while learning!!
