About this Campaign
Thank you for considering donating to our efforts to help students with special needs communicate and connect to the word around them! Access to this program will enhance opportunities for students with significant special needs to be involved in discussions about current local and global events. The program also offers explicit and fun instruction for telling a joke, making a simple recipe and other day to day communications that students with deficits in communication or with autism or intellectual disability often miss out on.
Access to this program will enhance opportunities for students with significant special needs to be involved in discussions about current local and global events. The program also offers explicit and fun instruction for telling a joke, making a simple recipe and other day to day communications that students with deficits in communication or with autism or intellectual disability often miss out on. This program will offer opportunities to increase the students confidence and chances for making meaningful connections with peers and for participating in the general education setting as well as in the greater community. The number of students who would benefit from this program would depend on case loads per teacher but could possibly be accessible to a broad range of educators from ELL to General Education Teachers as well as Special Education Teachers within our building. Data will be collected through weekly assessments and individualized learning goals.

We have completed our campaign for the News2You program for Meadowlane! Thank you so much for your donation. We are so excited to be able to put the program in place for students with significant disability. This will increase opportunities for students to engage in conversation, discussion of current events, and increase a sense of community and belonging. We are planning to implement the program at the beginning of the new school year and will share our progress and learning as soon as we are set up! Thank you so much again for your generosity, kindness and support. It means the world to know that people in our community want to help our students with opportunities to learn, communicate and gain independence.
