The LCPS Assistive Technology Team created the lending library to enhance the educational experience and provide access for all LCPS students, with visual, physical, communication, and cognitive supports. We have six categories of materials available for LCPS staff to check out from our lending library, including theme-based adapted books, adapted toys, core vocabulary kits, MATHLIT kits, shoebox and work tasks, and professional resources.
Please note that the last date to check out lending library materials for the 2016-17 school year is May 24. All materials are due to be returned in the pony no later than June 7. That will enable the AT team to inventory the materials and prepare for the next school year. We appreciate your patronage of our AT lending library!Adapted Book Kits incorporate theme-based adapted books with learning manipulatives, props, and visuals to support the story content. For additional adapted book resources, go to http://bit.ly/adaptbooks.
Adapted Toys are modified to enable physical or visual access to play. Some toys have built-up handles, but most of the adapted toys are switch activated, and a basic pressure switch is provided. Please contact your AT Trainer if your students need a different type of switch or if you need assistance in using the toys.
Core Vocabulary Kits incorporate core vocabulary into everyday language opportunities with a variety of specific core word themed stories and hands-on experiences. Engage students to learn core vocabulary through stories, graphics, and the manipulation of concrete objects. Kits include adapted books, manipulatives, visuals, and reproducible resources. We have now added enCORE Kits to this section. Each kit contains a resource notebook with reproducible sheets filled with implementation ideas, data collection sheets, and an interactive book focusing on a core "word of the week." Each kit also contains a trade book and at least one activity or puzzle reinforcing use of the core vocabulary word. Users are encouraged to add to the kits and share implementation ideas. If you are interested in making your own word of the week activity kit, please contact your AT Trainer. For additional core vocabulary resources, go to http://bit.ly/coreresources.
MATHLIT Kits incorporate math-themed books with manipulatives, visuals, and adapted activities to integrate the literature with hands-on math experiences. To supplement the low tech resources included in the kit, there are additional high tech resources in our LCPS VISION course, with links to videos, PowerPoints, lesson plans, interactive whiteboards, and more.
Shoebox and Work Tasks provide structured hands-on activities to support students' skills and IEP goals, all contained within a box. Fine-motor tasks include sorting, sequencing, size, shape, colors, numbers, and more.
Professional Resources include books and publications providing educational supports for a wide variety of special education and Universal Design for Learning topic areas.
