Special Education COVID-19 Resources

In addition to the Supplemental Learning Resources available through your child's classroom teacher(s), this is a list of additional supplemental resources that can support students learning during school closures.  Please feel free to reach out to your child's special education case manager for guidance on which of these resources may work best for you child's learning needs or if you are having difficulty accessing the material or if you may need access to printed material.  We will do our best to support your child's ability to stay engaged while school is out. 
But, most importantly, have fun learning!

Apps for Students With Special Needs

The link above will take you to an article about the apps. Below is a list and description of each app listed in the article. 
While we all try to limit the amount of screen time our children get, this list includes some nice supports for communication. 
  • My PlayHome is a free app that gives kids a digital doll family of up to 15 people in various skin tones with whom they can explore, play, and share stories with other people. These shared stories help to increase student verbalizations, provide a place for social and emotional learning, and teach necessary early language skills.
  • SoundingBoard is a free mobile augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) app designed for children who are unable to speak (or who have limited speech) to help them communicate. In order to meet the needs of this particular population, the app comes with preloaded boards using symbols with recorded messages. Students select and press images on the board to prompt a verbal message.
  • LetterSchool promotes early literacy and numeracy skills by guiding children to tap, touch, and trace colorful animations. Children learn letter formation, letter sounds and names, spelling, counting, and other preschool and primary skills. This app, which offers a free trial, also does an excellent job of developing fine motor skills and eye-hand coordination.
  • Tales2Go, an audiobook service that offers a free one-month trial, helps students who struggle to read while boosting their listening skills. This app has an extensive collection of stories and books for all ages, with scores of splendid narrators who bring stories from every genre to life.
  • Epic! is an e-library that is great for supporting reluctant or struggling readers. It provides access to more than 20,000 high-quality children’s books and educational videos and includes an assortment of both fiction and nonfiction books from prominent publishers. Epic is offering free access to schools during this time.
