We recently started a new project teaching English in an Italian Private school.The classes consist of mainstreaming kids with special needs. Below are some photos of hands-on activities being used in helping to learn colors and number and there will be more to follow.
Having tactile materials that students with special needs can use and manipulate helps them develop their organization and comprehension skills of the English language. We are working in particular with helping them retain the information in an organized manner.
We have also used songs and videos to help motivate and recall information.
