Help me give my students a classroom set of Go Talk 9 devices to help them gain independence and have greater control of their environment.
I am a hospital school teacher working at a large children's hospital in the Bronx. I primarily work with elementary aged students in a hematology/oncology clinic and an outpatient dialysis clinic. Many of my long term students require multiple hospitalizations, some over the course of multiple school years, and often follow a course of treatment that can include a combination of lengthy and short term stays, as well as day-long visits to the hospital for treatments such as chemotherapy or dialysis.
While undergoing medical treatment my students receive instruction in a hospital school program.
Students with childhood cancers and end stage renal diseases work extremely hard, despite all obstacles, to keep up with their peers and many are special needs students with IEPs. I am lucky to work with my awesome students on a one to one basis.
While undergoing medical treatment my students receive instruction in a hospital school program. In certain cases the students are non-verbal students who rely on communication devices in order to communicate to those around them. In some instances, a student’s ability to communicate may be temporarily or permanently impacted by a medical issue and they need to learn an alternative way to communicate their understanding, as well as their needs and wants. I am asking for a class set of Go Talk 9 for them.
In addition to communication devices, I would also use the components of the United States Resource box to teach all my students about the United States government.
This resource has miniature copies of American symbols, including the Liberty Bell and the Statue of Liberty, historical artifacts such as former U.S. flags, and a facsimile copy of the Declaration of Independence, that students will be able to hold in their hands and explore. Students will learn about voting using the sample ballot box and about the branches of government. The book "I Am America" tells the story of diversity in America and provides students with colorful pictures of children from all different backgrounds around the country. The materials can be wiped down and cleaned for infection control, which is important in a hospital setting. By using the Go Talk 9 students can show what they have learned throughout the unit.
