The video discusses a strategy to help non-functionally verbal students with reading comprehension. The strategy involves telling the student that you will read the book out loud, and they can say the words in their head, labeling it as their “inner voice.” This approach can help students better understand the material and engage with the content. The speaker recommends visiting Jane Farrall’s website for additional ideas on teaching inner voice in reading.
