Cards to Promote Independence

Promote independence with students with special needs, including those with visual impairments, using these index cards.

I have a student who has a one-on-one paraprofessional and I am trying to wean his dependence on her. There are three main things that he typically needs during class: help, bathroom, or a break from the activity/noise of the room. He has these brailled on permabraille sheets from APH that have been cut to flashcard size. They are velcroed to a sturdy plastic card that has been cut to 8 1/2 inch by 4 inch size. It will not be affixed to a desk. Rather, this will be a portable card that he can use in any classroom.
 
The goal is independence. We still have 3 weeks of ESY (Extended School Year) for him to practice using this. Fingers crossed.
