Mute in Year 3

Discussion in 'Special educational needs' started by hayleyfrancis, May 26, 2011.

  1. Hi guys,

    I have an interview tomorrow and need to teach a 30 minute lesson about the use of adverbs. Inititally I wanted to use lots of partner talk but I have just found out that one child in the class is mute. I'm not sure if they are selective or not but I was wondering if anyone could give me any advice/hints on how to go about catering for this need in order to make the lesson fully inclusive.

    Thanks!
     
  2. Use mini whiteboards?
     
  3. I'd provide an activity such as a card sort activity for the pairs to do so that if the child couldn't contribute verbally, s/he could show learning by sorting the cards. We have such a pupil in our school and she does very well when activities involve listening, reading and writing.

    Do they use any form of signing? Do they use symbols? I have a selective mute in my class (special school) and he will sign and uses a symbol based communication book (non-reader). Could you provide some sort of written / pictoral cards to use? Good luck?
