Today, the school staff spends a lot of time, effort and financial resources on making customized cards for each student, to maintain a clear and regular agenda. Tabs are often lost, and every morning they have to be found or created again. When there is a mid-day change in the schedule, the change is not updated in the tab panel, causing the child to have outbreaks and disorientation.
An app that allows the student to lead his or her agenda without the physical intervention of staff members by emphasizing an early warning for any change. When a change is made on the agenda, the child is notified on the screen and can choose an alternative lesson he would like.
At the Albasma School in East Jerusalem, a school for children with autism, the system and positive reactions are now embedded.Teachers only have to build the classroom once, freeing their time to be more available to their students. On the other end, the students are calmer and feel more in control.
And us? We would love to share this app with other schools.
