the Enhancement of Inclusive Middle school students in literacy through the usage of assistive technologies

Self Study Compiled by Makeda Holley

  • For the last three years as an English Language Arts teacher, there has been a lapse in service of assistive technologies for students with disabilities.
  • The disabilities in the various classes range from: autism, other health impaired, learning disabled, emotionally disturbed, bi-polar, and schizophrenia.
  • Students in the inclusion class at times feel left out due to the content of the class and have verbalized this on occasion via feeling lost and/or confused.
  • Regarding technology in the class, there are three desktop computers, a Smart Board, Projector, Access to a laptop cart and Access to five laptops via the Special Education department.
  • Through the usage of assistive technologies, students will enhance their literacy skills and be more prepared for the implementation of Common Core and critical thinking skills.
