What is CVI? Cerebral visual impairment (sometimes called cortical visual impairment or CVI) is a disorder caused by damage to the parts of the brain that process vision. It's most common in babies and young children, but can continue into adulthood. A child with CVI has vision problems that are caused by their brain that can't be explained by a problem with their eyes. Normally, the eyes send electrical signals to the brain, and the brain turns those signals into the images you see. If you have CVI, your brain has trouble processing and understanding these signals. As elementary teachers, we will sometimes see CVI learners in our classrooms. Supporting them can be a challenge if we are not familiar with the impairment.   In this week's episode I am sharing some ideas to better support your CVI learners.  This includes how you can adapt resources so that they can better interpret what you are showing them.   In this episode you will learn: The benefits of leaning on your visual impairment teacher when responsible. How to adapt resources for your CVI learners. How to find CVI friendly videos for instruction.

Thoughts On Leading With Greatness

Can people gain intelligence, or do we all just stay the same level we were born at?In elementary school, I was pretty smart and consequently was bullied by students and even sometimes teachers. At first, I struggled with the idea that being smart made me an outcast. Then, by the time I got to high school, it slowly dawned on me that I could just choose to be less smart. Don't get me wrong. I still did well, but I purposely dumbed down enough to not be a target. My high school was no bastion of intellectualism, and I learned to hide my smarts by actually being dumber, which caused my high school to treat me as less-bright. Obligingly, I became even more so, and downward I went. My college, though, was indeed a bastion of intellectualism, and while it took me a while to wise up and gear up, I was able to meet the challenge.I can see now that my intelligence was variable and that I could consciously choose my level of intelligence to match the given culture. This isn't a matter of just playing dumb or smart to accommodate a circumstance. It is about actually being so. Also, note that by “intelligence” I don't mean “learning,” which is a process, not a quality. Learning, though, can be a major contributor to increased intelligence, which is what a growth mindset is all about.The notion of mindset change has emerged as almost a commonplace among educators in the decade and a half since Carol Dweck published her landmark book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success. On a continuum, one can lean toward a fixed mindset, meaning a belief that intelligence is innate and immutable, or a growth mindset, meaning an understanding that effort and learning can enhance one's intelligence. The advantage of the growth mindset seems pretty obvious, and we can thank Dweck for finally breaking the back of the widely held belief that we are born either on the smart end of the scale or on the stupid end with little hope for change.As an educator, I am troubled to admit that I long bought into that old idea of fixed intelligence. In my defense, so did pretty much everyone else because it was the only model we knew. My colleagues and I would consciously and unconsciously sort students into buckets of bright and not-so-bright, which no doubt affected their ability to learn. When a presumptively bright student failed, I would blame it on a lack of effort. When a seemingingly not-so-bright student succeeded, I would be surprised and chalk it up as a fluke.Shame on me.The first time I heard an explanation of Dweck's growth mindset, it made intuitive sense, though. Despite my assumptions about student wherewithal, I knew deep down that students could get smarter. I had seen it. I had personally experienced it. In the past I would have said that they had innate talent all along that just needed to be brought out. How patronizing is that? In reality, they were likely applying themselves to learning and were actually becoming more intelligent.At its worst, the fixed mindset fixation has been used forever to justify oppressing and subjugating individuals and groups. You can still hear it touted rather loudly by those in our society and the world who seek to dominate others. It echoes in the notion that the poor are just lazy, that the rich can do no wrong, and that individuals are lesser than or more than just because of their identity group.Scarcity and AbundanceIn the business world we talk about a separate but similar mindset continuum, the mindset of scarcity or abundance. We know that people who have a scarcity mindset will sink or at best maintain but will never grow without some shock to the system. Those with an abundance mindset will tend to succeed. The choice can be one of life or death for entrepreneurs such as myself, and I struggle with it mightily.To be clear here, this is not woo-woo. It's not a matter of wishful thinking, positive thinking, or magical affirmations. The growth mindset and it's business partner, the abundance mindset, both require commitment and work. Remember, that with the growth mindset you don't get smarter by believing you can get smarter. You get smarter by committing to that belief and acting on it. You have to know you can learn, want to learn, and do the hard work of learning. It is the same for the abundance mindset. Dreaming about abundance without action will never be more than a dream no matter how many vision boards you construct.What I always find interesting is how challenging it can be to fight your way toward intellectual growth and an attitude of abundance and how quickly a fixed mindset or a scarcity mindset can undo you. It is remarkably easy to dumb down. I know. I did it. It is remarkably easy to descend into scarcity. I know, I once worked for a whole college that is sadly still stuck there, denying itself available resources.In contrast, both smarting up and resourcing up require continuous intent, effort, and struggle. Learners and growers operate outside their comfort zones. If you limit the scope of your operations to an intellectual, cultural, or even political bubble — avoiding anything that challenges your beliefs and assumptions — you have a fixed mindset. You are choosing to limit the expansion of your intellect. You are refusing the possibility of abundance. You are hindering growth. To be clear, though, having a fixed or growth mindset neither determines the level of your intelligence nor predicts success. Mindset is an attitude or an internalized paradigm that leads to certain behaviors and outcomes. Highly intelligent and educated people can have a fixed mindset just as a well-heeled chief executive or entire corporation can have a scarcity mindset. Your circumstances do not dictate your mindset. Your choices do.If you are fixed in place by a fixed mindset, you can choose to grow with a growth mindset. If you are scarred by a scarcity mindset, you can choose to dance with an abundance mindset. Your mindset is one of the few things entirely within your control, so take control. All you need to start is to change your mind.Where are you on the continuum of fixed and growth mindsets? Where are you on the continuum of scarcity and abundance mindsets?You can be the kind of leader who cultivates growth and abundance mindsets in yourself and in others, and I can help.

Why?: What creative methods might you use to help your learners answer the So What Now? of The Effective Four? What?: Why? What? So What? So What Now? are The Effective Four questions. If you can help your learners answer these four from a Bible passage, you'll find that the Holy Spirit uses the truth of the passage to transform them, to make them wise. If you're teaching for transformation, you've helped them answer the So What? question that finds potential application for their lives. Now, you need to get them to commit to that transformation. Here you help them answer the So What Now? When they commit, they change their world, if only in a small way. To be wise, they'll need to follow through on their new commitment. This call could be as impersonal as a challenge such as, "Will you commit…?" It could be as personal as connecting them with an accountability partner who will hold them to their commitment while asking the same from them. It could be a simple reminder during the week by way of a postcard, an email, or a text message. It could be a promise to ask for a progress report the next time the class is together. So What?: However you do it, don't fill their heads with new information without asking their hearts to be changed. Commitment makes the transformation more likely. So What Now?: Will you commit to asking them to commit to being transformed? This is why God has given you as a gift to the church—to help each disciple to be more like the Master.

Today we're talking about teacher talk. I feel that usually when you hear about teacher talk, people talk about teacher talk time, but today we're not going to talk about that at all. We're going to talk much more about the quality rather than the quantity of teacher talk.There's obviously so many different aspects and everything to teacher talk, but one of the most obvious ones is giving instructions.Instructions I feel are important for more than one reason in class, because obviously, if you don't get clear instructions, then everything else probably that you do in class is not going to work very well because the students don't know what to do.Also instructions, I feel, especially when you're teaching kids, it's maybe the time when there's the most communication in English because students are listening to you not just to repeat what you say afterwards, but they're actually listening so they know what to do afterwards.Matt: It's also when teaching kids it's one of the largest chunks of time that a teacher should be talking, right?Ross: Hopefully, not too long.Matt: That's probably one of the most common pieces of feedback I give to teachers is don't explain, show them what you expect them to do. It's so much simpler the language that you would be using by just showing them rather than explaining the whole process. Actually, any time you get a new board game like Monopoly or Risk or whatever.It always starts off the same way with you and your friend. Where you get out this instruction book and you look at these 40 or 50 steps, and the person is reading out every step of how to play the game and the same thing inevitably happens at the end of it where the person reading the instructions is like, so you guys get that?Ross: Not really. Let's just do one round as a practice.Matt: Yes, everyone always says it every time. Let's play a practice round and we'll figure it out and then we'll play for real. The board game is the exact same as a classroom activity, where the students are sitting there listening to this long process of do step one, step two, step three.It is all jumbled up in there. I think a much more effective way is just try it out for a practice round and then stop a minute, make sure they understand it and then go through the activity.Ross: It's like a picture is worth a thousand words and I feel like a demonstration is worth a thousand instruction. A couple of things that work well for that one is that when you model something, typically there's more than one role that the teacher needs to model.One nice thing I saw a teacher do once is when demonstrating a dialogue is holding up one finger on each hand with those fingers facing each other and just using our two fingers as a way of showing like this is these two people talking. Then, you could also take on different voices for the two roles.That's another thing or you could physically move. I've seen teachers before, draw on the board two faces and then stand next to one face and put on one voice when you're demonstrating one role and then you switch to the other side of the board and stand next to the other face. That helps to make it salient to the students.Matt: A lot of course book materials will also come with some extras that are useful for modeling. I know one school I worked at every set of course books comes with a tiger puppet. What a great way of instead of using your fingers and wiggling your fingers and you can be person A and then you can be talking to the tiger puppet on your hand as a person B.At another school, every teacher have finger puppets, they were able to have multiple people and on their fingers to show off the different roles within the conversation.Ross: I love those ideas. Another thing teachers do before they get on to getting the students to do the activity is asking some checking questions. But I feel there are some checking questions that are much more valuable than others, right?Matt: Yeah, the kinds of instruction checking questions you want short responses. Do you do A or do you do B? Are you the customer or are you the seller? It's clarifying key points of the task and the level of words that you're using, like six‑year‑old students, haven't studied words like unscramble, gap‑fill.To be honest, learning the word unscramble or gap‑fill isn't ever going to be useful for them outside of an English lesson. You don't want to spend that precious time teaching them the word like unscramble whenever there are those content words that you do want to focus on.See the rest of the transcript of this episode

#087: Speech Sound Production and Autistic Learners - A Talk With Tamara Kasper

What is it that develops speech production in our learners? Today, Tamara Kasper, BCBA and SLP, is sharing some really great and specific information on how speech production and reinforcement differs between typical developing children versus children with autism.Speech Sound ProductionIn typically developing children, speech sounds are reinforced differentially and automatically when making sounds that sound like words. For example, they get a cookie when they make a sound that sounds like cookie or they get happy, hugging excitement when they say something that sounds like mama or dada. Naturally, typical children are encouraged by the sounds and interactions in their environment and want to match the sounds made by the people they value in their world. This is where self-correction and refinement comes in because they will notice and hear how their sounds may sound different from the adults around them. In non-typically developing children, specifically those with autism, they are more sensitive to social stimuli and are less likely to be affected by the attention of their parents or guardians in regards to their sounds. So the traditional, automatic reinforcement to make and refine sounds is not occurring. Additionally, these learners will not likely notice how their sounds sound different from those around them, leading to no self-correction as sound production continues. Therapy for Speech Sound ProductionTamra shares her assessment and criteria for determining readiness for working on speech production. She collects metrics from the VB-MAPP, indicating responses, manding rate and variety, instruction cooperation development, and echoic repertoire. The scores and data from these metrics will relay whether a Natural Environment or Structure Teaching therapy is appropriate for these students. Within these systems, Tamra discusses the programs she uses. She shares today a little bit of her rubric on how she assigns these programs based on the needs of the child and assessment criteria. If you'd like to learn more about Tamra, you can find out more about her work and some video tips at Northern Speech Services. Additionally, if you'd like access to her therapy rubric discussed today and other resources, you can reach her via email.#autism #speectherapyWhat's Inside:Acquisition of speech production in typical vs non-typical children.Do typically developing children shape sounds to match those in their environment?How do we know when an autistic learner is ready for speech sound production in therapy?Assessment and Criteria for determining therapy training for sound production.Training programs for natural environment and structured teaching therapy.Mentioned In This Episode:tkasper@centerautism.orgNorthern Speech Services ABA Speech: HomeStart Communicating Today – Waitlist – ABA Speech​​Help Me Find My Voice – EVERGREEN – ABA SpeechSeptember 13th FREE Webinar 8-9 pm EST registration linkSeptember 14th Free Webinar 8-9 pm EST registration link
