Goal

To provide access to curriculum and increase communication opportunities to neurodivergent students in the classroom and in school activities.  

 

What will be done with my students

Small communication devices (switches) can be programmed and reprogrammed in real time to provide students with limited communication abilities the ability to participate in conversations, make choices, interact with their environment, and access the curriculum.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students with limited communication will be able to participate in academic and social opportunities by using simple switches that provides a voice output. In essence, this gives limited verbal communicators a voice. Switches supplement picture supports and provides a verbal model for communication. Limited communicators will be able to interact with peers throughout the school building during shared activities such as recess, lunch, and specials. This also increases awareness and acceptance for diverse communication modalities. Teachers can program switches so that students can access the curriculum for activities such as one to one correspondence for counting, retelling stories, and expressing needs, wants, and emotions. 

 

Describe the Students

Students accessing the switches are considered ESE students who have difficulty communicating for academic and social purposes.
