Working with students who have
         special needs
 Inclusion is very fair and beneficial to all students, those
  with special needs and those without
    Special needs children
      Rise to the occasion and try harder to do things instead of having
       them done by others
      Develop social skills by interacting with other students and
       observing positive role models
    Children without special needs
      Accept those that are different from them
      Peer tutor and help those with special needs
        Boosts self confidence

        Helping them further understand topics by helping others
         understand
How can you describe working
      with special needs students?
 Challenging
    Have to adapt almost every lesson to meet their needs
    All needs are different
          As with all learners, not just ones with special needs
     Often have to do re-teaching
     Helpful when you have a SPED teacher and/or paraprofessional, as I do (I have both!)
   Rewarding
     Seeing that “light bulb” go off in their eyes is amazing!
     They know they are different from the other students, even in kindergarten
        When they have the same or similar product as their peers, or know the same information and can
         share it, they feel more equal
   Eye-opening
     I have learned about so many assistive technologies, electronic-based and otherwise
     Hoping your students will learn something and actually seeing them learn it are two
      different things
     Seeing and knowing that these children deserve the same education as their peers because
      they can do it, and they can do it in an inclusion classroom
Assistive technology in my current
             classroom
 FM system for a student with hearing problems
    I wear a microphone and he has a small speaker that he
     gets every time we sit on the carpet (which is a lot)
    It makes it easier for him to
     hear; sometimes, when we
     both forget he needs to take
     it with him to the carpet, he
     is more easily distracted and
     does not even try to pay attention
     because he cannot hear me very well
Assistive technology in my current
             classroom
 Dynavox
    My student is nonverbal (except for noises) and she uses this
     computer-like machine to communicate with people
        peers, teachers, parents, etc.
    She navigates it very well, opening
     and closing different windows to
     locate the words she wants to say
    Voice that speaks sounds like a little
     girl, so it seems more realistic that
     she is the one talking
    The other students love it! They love
     to hear this student “talk” using her
     “box” and enjoy having conversations with her, too
Assistive technology in my current
             classroom
 Slant board
    Helps with student writing skills
    Helps a lot with their letter formation
    Benefits how they hold their pencils and overall work
     products
Assistive technology in my current
             classroom
 iPad
    We have a lab in our school for all students to access 30 iPads
    Have apps for all student needs
        I use them mostly for extra practice for students who are struggling
         in a specific area
    ProLoQuo2Go
      Similar to the Dynavox
      Allows people to communicate without
       talking
      We do not have this app, but it would be
       beneficial to some of my students
         Because they are nonverbal or are difficult to

          understand due to speech difficulties
Assistive technology I have learned
    about and would like to use
 TouchWindow
    Screen that fits over a computer monitor and makes it a
     touch screen
    One of my students has a lot of difficulty using a
     mouse, and this would enable her to easily navigate a
     computer
Assistive technology I have learned
about and would like to use
 Mimio board
    Using a projector and a small mount on a whiteboard, your regular whiteboard
     is turned into an interactive board!
    Allows you to stream anything from your computer to the whiteboard
    Provides lesson plans and allows you to create lessons to be interactive for your
     students
    Can make anything on your computer interactive
          PDF files
          Word files
          PowerPoint presentations
          Web pages
     You (and your students) can add, delete, and
      change all of these to teach about any topic
     Especially beneficial kinesthetic learners because
      they are actually “doing” instead of just sitting and listening
     Special needs students would benefit from larger print and ability to interact
      with the lesson instead of just watching (as with all students)
