"The Visual Immersion System (VIS) uses visual supports based on seven communicative operations: 1) Protest and refusal, 2) Transitions, 3) Requesting, 4) Commenting, 5) Directives, 6) Questions, and 7) Social pragmatics. For each of the seven functions, the book describes how to determine when to introduce that function, provide guidelines on how to prepare materials, outline how to conduct and improve instruction, and describe how to collect data and measure progress. Case examples from clinical practices as well as results from ongoing field study further illustrate how to generalize to the home and school environment. The final chapter will offer comparisons of VIP to other communication approaches. The accompanying downloads include photocopiable checklists and forms for assessment, implementation, and progress monitoring"--

This book presents information about the design and provision of small group instruction to students who present persistent, ongoing learning challenges. This includes students who receive special education services as well as at risk students who need to be provided remedial instruction. At the outset, reasons for using a small group arrangement are offered. These include (a) limits to public school funding that do not allow for 1:1 instructional arrangements to be used with most students who present learning challenges, (b) the instructional efficiency that can be realized through small group instruction, and (c) the fact that group instructional arrangements predominate in schools’ least restrictive environments. Subsequently, numerous details that instructors must attend to as they oversee small group instruction are discussed. These details include identifying which students will comprise a group and the specific curricula content they will be taught, designing an appropriate environment, and using data to drive the provision of effective and efficient instruction. While the primary audience for this book is preservice and practicing teachers, it is appropriate for anyone tasked to lead a small group. Further, the book’s content can be applied to various curricula, including academic and functional (or life skills) content.

The year is 1969, and fresh-out-of-college smart-aleck Howard Shane has just landed his first teaching job--at Belchertown State School, a bleak institution where people with disabilities endure endless days of silence, tedium, and neglect. Howard is stunned by the conditions at Belchertown and the challenges of his new job, but as he gets to know his diverse, endearing, and intelligent students, he becomes consumed with a mission: to unlock their communication skills and help them reach their full potential. Pitting his youthful idealism and passion against the rigidity of a rule-bound administrator, Howard battles his way to small joys and victories with his students--and, along the way, learns just as much as he teaches. A stirring and spellbinding memoir from internationally renowned AAC expert Howard Shane (Boston Children's Hospital, Harvard Medical School), Unsilenced is a candid look at a pivotal era in disability history and a deeply personal account of how all human beings can flourish when we care for each other and fight for change.
