As you may know the Legends Foundation are professional athletes, coaches, cheerleaders, actors, actresses and musicians present personal Legend’s stories. Professionals inspire audiences to make good decisions, take responsibilities and to leave a legacy on future generations. “After the Bell, 4:20 Daily Choices” with professionals as role models are mentors to many. Our professionals speak at schools, universities, churches, businesses and correctional centers to encourage higher education, careers, good deeds and faith through making good daily choices with motivation and life changing experiences.

Our current project will allow RILEY TO SPEAK! Check out the PowerPoint attached and if you can help support Riley and our causes, it would be greatly appreciated by many.

Project Riley Project Riley Presentation Transcript

  • Project:Riley Speaks
    How new technology can influence and change the world for children who are non-verbal.
  • Thank you for taking the time to learn about “Project: Riley Speaks.” My name is Angie Kintigh and I am the Autism teacher for Carrollton Schools (kindergarten through 5th grade). I hold this project very dear to my heart as I have seen how frustrated a child can become by not being able to communicate her wants and needs. Again, I thank you for your time and consideration of supporting “Riley Speaks.”
  • Introducing: Miss Riley
    Riley is a beautiful 13 year old young lady. She loves making others laugh and being with her typical developing peers. Riley is currently transitioning from elementary school to junior high school.
    Riley is non-verbal and she has multiple diagnosis. She is able to make utterances and many individual sounds. Currently, the only way Riley is able to communicate is through sign language. This is great when working with special education teachers and her parents, but NOT when socializing with her peers, going out to eat, communicating with other staff and adults or just trying to be a normal teenager. Riley is restricted to communicate with only those who know sign language.
  • More about Riley…
    With Riley’s disability she:
    • Has difficulty with fine motor skills; writing with a pencil and paper is a tremendous task for her.
    • Is limited on gross motor skills: walking by herself is a danger, as is maneuvering her body up and down stairs.
    • Is very delayed in cognitive skills; however, Riley is one smart cookie!!! (trust me!!!)
    Riley is addressing an envelope to mail a letter to her mom and dad.
    Completing this envelope was a huge success for Riley. She was so proud of her work as was I. This task took approximately 35 minutes; something that takes you and I only seconds.
  • Community Life
    Riley is a very active member of her community in her hometown.
    She has great family support. Her family always sees her as a child first then a child who has a disability.
    Riley participates in Special Olympics and is an active cheerleader and member of the Carroll Hills track team!
  • New Technology
    This new technology allows children who are non-verbal to communicate with others effectively, follow daily schedules, and makes learning and completing tasks much less frustrating
    There are numerous apps such as “Proloquo2Go” that makes communicating as simple as touching a button.
    With the iPad, Riley will be able to speak intelligibly to all of her teachers, staff and classmates.
    Order her own lunch at the cafeteria/restaurant
    Communicate needs and wants
    When she is sick she will be able to address where she is feeling sick
    Complete classroom assignments with MUCH less frustration than using a pencil and paper
    Create and follow her own daily schedule to assist her in BEING AS INDEPENDENT AS POSSIBLE.
  • Future Goals
    For all of my students, my goals, as well as their parents’ is to make each child as INDEPENDENT and as well educated as possible, as well as, to become a successful and respectable member of their community.
    Now, imagine not being able to communicate with others. Imagine knowing sign language and telling someone you need help but them just looking at you and shaking their head because they don’t understand.
    Imagine your child being non-verbal and unable to communicate with you. Imagine never hearing your child speak. Imagine having to guess why your child isn’t feeling well.
    Riley’s parents along with many others have encountered these and numerous other concerns. The iPad answers these concerns by providing a voice for these children. They give Riley and others the opportunity to speak.
  • Support:
    My main goal is to provide Riley with an iPad as she moves on to the Junior High School. I feel this is greatly needed to make her education as successful as possible.
    Ideally, I would love to have an iPad for all of the students in my classroom whom are non-verbal. This coming school year I will have 3 non-verbal students.
    The four iPads needed are:
    • Apple iPad 2 with Wi-Fi-32GB
    • Currently available at http://store.apple.com/us/browse/home/shop_ipad/family/ipad/select?mco=MjE0OTI0MDIfor $599.99 each.
  • Our School Dellroy Elementary
    Our school is not big; but it is a school filled with loving teachers, staff and students. We at Dellroy Elementary are a family. Our children are our future.
  • Thank you again for your time and consideration. My students and myself greatly appreciate any assistance you are able to provide us with.With your assistance, you are providing a voice for students who are unable to speak for themselves. You are making their world more typical and normal. Youare providing a positive foundation for their future.
