Having a locker and remembering a combination can be difficult for any student. A student with FASD might have more difficulty remembering a combination and can often feel compelled to share combinations with others.
Finding different lock options for a student to use at school should always be approved by the school first. Each of the locks shown in the pictures provide students with the opportunity to cater to their strengths and ignore the difficulties they may have with traditional combination locks.
Some lock options include a lock that spells a word for those students who have an easier time with language than numbers. When students struggle to remember the password, they can ask for the code word from the front office, text their parents or check with a teacher. This lock is great for students whose memory does not cater to numbers and specfic turns and sequences.
The next lock is a key lock. This lock is great for students who are vulnerable and often give out their combination. With only the one key they will be less likely to give it away. These locks can also be less expensive if they have to be replaced. A copy of the key can be provided to the office for thwen the student forgets or loses the key.
The third lock is more similar to a tradtional lock with the three-number combination. However, the student is not required to turn the lock twice in one direction and once in the other direction. By seeing all three numbers lined up, they can access the goods in their locker quicker and the office can be supply the three numbers necessary to open the lock.
