Example | Narrative Language in Middle School Resource Setting


I am working with two middle school students that have mild intellectual disabilities. They are both working on reading a paragraph and extracting the information to answer a “textual problem solving” multiple-choice question.

  • Animals – Textual Problem Solving
  • Daily Situations – Textual Problem Solving
  • Nutrition – Textual Problem solving

They work on their learning paths and then I work with each student 1:1. While student A is working on his learning path for 15 minutes, I do direct therapy with student B. Then, we switch. When student B is working on his learning path, I do direct therapy with student A. Instead of waiting their turn for me to focus on one of them, they are engaged throughout the entire session on their individual learning paths. I make use of every minute I have with them for speech therapy. And, there are so many activities, I can easily work toward generalization without running out of stimuli. Amplio technology makes this possible.
