In this self-contained high school classroom, a teacher asks a student to identify an initial letter in a word. The student uses his color coded alphabet and eye gaze system to choose a letter. When the student chooses the final letter of the word instead of the initial letter, the teacher tells him the name of the letter he chose and the name of the initial letter. She then shows him where he should have looked to indicate the initial letter. The teacher supports the student throughout his thinking process and allows him plenty of wait time. The video demonstrates effective strategies for engaging students with significant cognitive disabilities in literacy instruction.
