My Students

Working in special education, I see so many different types of kiddos every day. Currently, I work for a special education co-op that services over 10 different schools in a rural county north of Waco, Texas. In addition to seeing kids for speech therapy services at three different schools in the county, I am also the Assistive Technology Coordinator for our co-op. That makes me responsible for making sure any student that is struggling to succeed in their classroom with typically available technology and supports is considered for assistive technology devices and services.

Because their needs are so vast, and oftentimes very specific, it takes a lot of different materials and tools to give our students the best learning environment possible.

Some students need supports for reading and writing, while others need help with mobility, positioning, sensory processing issues, communication, and much more.

My Project

My students learn in so many different ways. Due to their disabilities, some require more hands-on instruction to stay engaged during therapy sessions.

A whiteboard kidney table would give me a place to teach while remaining engaged with my students.

It would also give my students a place to write their articulation words, practice creating wonderful sentences, and keep track of their own progress, all while being novel and interesting enough to maintain their attention. We use a lot of worksheets and flash cards. And sometimes, that can be very boring and ineffective for my learners that need additional support. A whiteboard kidney table would change the dynamic in our therapy room and get my students more involved and engaged.
