My Students

My students have been diagnosed with various forms of disabilities but their primary disability is Autism.

My students have extreme difficulties and deficits in the areas of language, communication and social functioning.

The frustration of not being able to communicate often leads to negative behavior challenges in the classroom. The inability for some of my students to communicate has produced a significant impact on their quality of life, educational access, and development of social skills and relationships and more often lead to negative behavior challenges.

My Project

The inability for some of my students to communicate has a significant impact on their quality of life, educational access, and development of social skills and relationships. The frustration of not being able to communicate often leads to negative behavior challenges in the classroom. The IPads will enable my students to produce verbal thoughts and words as they will use technology as a voice output device to speak for them and help them express themselves more fluently. They will use the iPads to write, create and give presentations, and more readily participate in school and community environments. It will assist them with organization and self-management with calendars, schedules and work systems.
