Most everyone agrees that getting regular education and special education students interacting with each other is good for all of them. Among the benefits are that it builds understanding and acceptance of differences, and often enhances the self-esteem of the special ed kids. Friendships development. Good things happen.
So we were struck by the idea one educator mentioned to us. She has the regular ed children record the TapToTalk sounds for her non-verbal and partially-verbal special ed students. They pair up, so one child becomes the standard voice for his or her buddy.
It does not take a lot of imagination to see how many ways this could be a great idea. So we thought we'd share it with all of you. Maybe it would work in your setting.
