What we are about:
David, Rusty and Charlie are all students in the Capstone class within Austin High School(more about us in the perspectives tab). This class is a service based learning class where the students break into groups, find an issue and find ways to fix it. Our group noticed the lack of funding within the Life Skills and Sped programs within our own school, as well as in schools across Austin. Due to our connection with Cowan Elementary, we decided to make a difference in the Life Skills and Sped programs there.
Here After asking what was needed within these programs, we found that they were in need of:
-5 Large Classroom Visual Timers
-15 Noise Reducing Headphones
-5 Weighted Lap Pads
-15 Chair Bands
-15 Texture Squares
-15 Stress Balls
-15 High Interest, Low Readability Books
Here is the official Wishlist.
These items totaled to be approximately:
