Scenario 6

A 3rd grade boy named Jamal is non-verbal

Kahoot allows the ability to answer questions without trying to verbally communicate.

VOCAs-Voice Output Communication Aids: incorporate some form of pictorial representation on the keys of the hand-held devices – each key contains a pre-recorded message that “speaks” the name of the object or action.

Type-to-Talk devices: similar to VOCAs, these are usually appropriate for older children who are able to type on a traditional keyboard; as a child types, the device “speaks” for him.

Adaptive computers and keyboards: standard computers (desktops or laptops) and keyboards adapted with special software, touch-screen monitors, and keyboards with pictorial overlays that allow the non-verbal child to communicate and interact with others.
