        Communicating My Writing with Others | English Language Arts Strategies for Students with Cognitive Disabilities

        In this self-contained lower elementary classroom, a student uses her communication book to tell an adult about a detailed drawing she has created of a tiger jumping over a ring of fire with her entire family watching. One of the practices to note in the video is that the student has a comprehensive communication system that has been individualized for her. It includes actual pictures of her family, which she uses to describe her illustration. This allows the student to go into greater detail with her explanation. The teacher also encourages her to expand her communication by asking questions. The video demonstrates effective strategies for engaging students with significant cognitive disabilities in literacy instruction.
