Cause and Effect for Language

Help me give my students the Magical Light Show and the Music Box to teach them "cause and effect" to bring them towards mastering pre-linguistic skills.

My Students

My students are a wonderful group of children with amazing personalities. Most people, however, don't get to see that side of them. Although most of my students are in the elementary school age, I also work with students as young as 3 and as old as 22. All of my students have a variety of intellectual, physical, and sensory impairments.

My students spend a good amount of their day learning how to communicate with others.

You see, my students are non-verbal and are not able to independently communicate. I know that there is SO much that they want to tell me, the adults around them, and their peers. Each one is unique and each have a different story to tell. We just need to find a way for them to tell it.

My Project

Many of my students to not yet have the ability to get their needs and wants met through oral language. They use other forms of communication, such as crying. One way to start teaching these skills is through the use of cause and effect toys.

Both the Magical Light Show and the Music Box chosen for this project help students to learn that when they touch a button something interesting happens.

This, in turn, will later translate into students using AAC for communication. All students deserve the chance to learn how to communicate. It is wonderful that, at this time, there are cause and effect toys to help students grow within their development.
