If you met someone who is non-verbal, would you be able to see their level of ability? Be specific with relation to the situations depicted in the movie. • If I met someone who is non-verbal, I believe that I could figure out ways to see their level of disability. After watching a clip in the “A Clear Picture: The Use and Benefits of PECS” video of the dance teachers showing Leila how to turn on the radio and which buttons made the music turn on. Even though they weren’t able to tell her that that button turned the music on, they were able to bring her over to the table where the radio was and would pause it and then turn it back on and eventually she was able to catch on and get the concept. I think that by showing my students different things and ways to do things in the classroom, they will be able to grasp the concept and do it. Support your view! Return to window
• From watching the film, I have learned that alternative approaches for communication with non-verbal students can be done in a variety of ways. When watching the girl with the radio, I noticed that she was able to communicate with her teachers on what she wants. When the music would stop, she would go back to the table to watch and see how to turn it back on. That way of communicating taught her how to tell her teachers what she wanted and she was able to figure out how to get that on her own. What have you learned from the film regarding alternative approaches for communication for non-verbal students?
