Because Together We're Better
Hi We're AdaptEd,
AdaptEd is the only TEAM of Specialists on teacherspayteachers.com.
Our specialties are: Speech and Language Pathologist (SLP), Occupational Therapist (OT), Special Education Teacher and Assistive Technology Specialist.
We formed a team- because we are a team! We approach challenges from different perspectives- and challenge each other to push the limits for the betterment of our students.
There's a reason we all chose to become a specialist in a certain area (academics, speech and language, occupational therapy... the list goes on!)
We know that the best way to help students is to pair them with a professional who can meet each of their unique needs.
But there's the catch! Our students are UNIQUE.
No single professional can paint the whole picture of who a student is and what they may need as part of their education. That's why we have the SpEd team!
We need the unique perspective and advice from each team member to incorporate best practices and get the most beneficial results.
When Meg, our SLP, is working on communication with a student she can't forget that there may be sensory needs that need to be met before learning can happen.
When Vanessa, our OT, is working on gross motor she can't forget that movement is a GREAT time to elicit language.
When Krystie, our SpEd teacher, is teaching a lesson she can't forget that instruction should be provided at the student's language level- or that those sensory strategies will help her student to attend.
Here at AdaptEd we understand that we are stronger together.
Each of our products is created by a professional IN THAT FIELD.
Better yet, our products are tried and tested by the whole team.
That's right- our OT gives feedback on our academic and communication resources . . . and she gets feedback on how her OT resources work in the classroom and other therapy settings.
Together we can build products that support our students as a whole. Together we can get those tricky questions answered.
Together we are AdaptEd!
Krystie, Vanessa and Meg
