All Schools Special Needs  - Projects

Project 1  - SMART Boards

It's natural. Students want to learn in the classroom the same way they interact outside of it. SMART's technology makes exploring lessons and collaborating on solutions a simple, easy experience that students immediately recognize and adopt.

In 2014 the ASSN donated SMART boards and software to several of the class rooms in the Ridgefield Park School system in 2014 and what a difference it has made!

Project 2 - Special SMART Board Software

SMART Software is software that works the way students naturally want to learn. 

In 2014 the ASSN donated SMART board software to further enhance the experience of teaching the special needs students.Designed specifically for the classroom, SMART amp enables co-creation and fosters student collaboration on devices, while giving teachers real-time insight into learning and contribution.


Project 3 - IPad's

iOS is the world’s most advanced — and most accessible — mobile operating system. Innovative features like VoiceOver, AssistiveTouch, and Guided Access help students with special needs enjoy more of what an iPad has to offer.

In 2014 The ASSN bought 20 IPads with apps for  sutdents. These devices are fun and powerful learning tools for students with attention deficits or other cognitive and learning disabilities. Teachers can minimize visual stimulation by limiting access to a single app, and students can use FaceTime and Camera to communicate with more than just words.
