Gloria: Apps and Resources for Young Children with Special Needs

03/06/2012 12:11

Cristi Saylor (Deaf and Hard of Hearing Itinerant teacher from the San Diego County Office of Education) and I attended the Cal Ed 2012 Conference this past weekend. Our presentation--Insights on Using the iPad for Students with Special Needs--was based on our experiences working with students who are deaf-blind, deaf, and hard of hearing with special needs.

After an introduction on how to use the iPad, Cristi and I discussed its advantages, disadvantages and considerations when using it with this population, and presented apps (applications) that have proven to work. We also showed some video clips of children using different apps and a sequence on the initial stages of using the iPad as a learning tool. 

Below is a list of the apps and resources we discussed with the audience. I have also included the resources the audience shared with us.

Subject The Garden Club of America is a national leader in the fields of horticulture


The Garden Club of Allegheny County (GCAC), is “Talking Trash” to Pittsburgh, PA organizations that have the power to solve the problems caused by the profusion of consumables that pollute land and water. In partnership with Allegheny CleanWays (AC) , eighteen members of GCAC sorted, measured, and catalogued some 6,900 pounds of trash collected from several riverfront and illegal dumpsites. Allegheny CleanWays is using the audit findings to educate the public, and to put pressure on companies, government entities, and NGO’s to make positive environmental changes. In addition, GCAC backed-up its labor with a $10,000 grant to Allegheny CleanWays. In a parking lot on a crisp fall day, GCAC volunteers hand-sorted the contents of a dumpster and dozens of trash bags of paper, food wrapping, textiles, furniture scraps, and other discarded items—more than 11,000 separate pieces of trash—much of it rusty, sharp, or toxic. AC staff then weighed and analyzed the trash. This audit was the first of its kind in the Pittsburgh area. Garden Club of Allegheny County members will continue to be active with Trash Audit and other conservation programs in its community. As the GCAC project leader says: “As challenging as the trash audit was, now being able to talk specifics about the trash was worth the effort!”

Subject Compare finance worldwide


On the 16th of February, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported that in the United States providers were administering about 1.72 million doses per day on average. EU countries, on the other hand, have taken a slower approach to the vaccine rollout. Supply chain issues and a slow response from the EU to sign for the vaccine has meant that in the first quarter of 2021 they may receive only 40% of the amount they requested last August.The World Health Organisation (WHO) first reported a cluster of infectious pneumonia cases, later found to be COVID-19, on the 31st of December 2019, in Wuhan City, Hubei Province, China. In the months that followed, the rest of the world caught up and began announcing large numbers of COVID-19 cases and deaths. But China, where the virus is predicted to have originated seemed to get the pandemic under control much more quickly than other countries as a result of a fast response, strict nationwide lockdown and screening measures. The graph above compares the number of COVID-19 cases, deaths and recovered patients in the top 10 GDP countries worldwide, as of the 15th of February 2021. At the time of writing, the USA has had more than 29 Million cases and half a million deaths, which is more than 100 times higher than the death figure reported by China, India, who had taken over the UK’s spot as the 5th largest economy in the world in 2019, is another country which has been badly affected by the pandemic. With 10,919,616 cases and 155,789 deaths, their economy has taken a hit and slipped behind, and are now not due to take back their place until 2024.
