Help me give my students a writing/learning program that will enable them to achieve and be successful. The Learning Without Tears Program helps students with physical deficits, cognitive deficits and visual perceptual deficits learn in a fun way!
I am honored to currently work with students with special needs.
My group includes students with a variety of diagnosis including but not limited to: cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, developmental delay, down syndrome and autism.
I adore "my kids" because they always have smiles on their faces and are always willing to try. My kids don't let the "so called disability" stop them. They are always ready to try new things and learn while we, as a team make the learning fun! My students are always trying to help others before they help themselves, so I try my best to always help them make learning and life functional and fun.
All students can have difficulty with writing development. If the student however, like my students, have special needs the tasks of writing can become even more of a challenge. The Learning Without Tears Program is a proven and established program that can be used with all students regardless of their "ability". The program promotes developmental appropriate tools to make writing fun.
The use of the Learning Without Tears Program's Stamp and See along with the Capital Letter Cards and Roll a Dough Letter/Number Cards promote a fun multi sensory educational experience.
The program supports left and right handed students. The program is developmentally focused and uses concepts that can be easily carried over and modified as the students achieve their beginning foundational goals.
The use of specific shapes to build letters and numbers, directional colorful cards and supportive workbooks and work pages will make such a difference in the school year for learning. Special writing tools that are made for little hands as they learn to draw, write, color and express themselves, is greatly needed.
We ask for a little help to add to what we have in order to present a full program to promote academic success for all my students, regardless of their "ability".
