Unlocking Literacy Module 1 Part 3: Foundational Strategies-Avoid Hand Over Hand

This video discusses the drawbacks of using hand-over-hand guidance to teach students with communication devices. The speaker argues that it only promotes passivity and disconnect from their own bodies. Instead, she suggests waiting for the student to access the device independently, using motivators like bubbles, books, or photos of people. The speaker also emphasizes the importance of setting a precedent for professionals, parents, and teachers to recognize the child’s capability and potential. The speaker’s approach is based on her experience evaluating over 1,000 children and encouraging them to access their communication devices independently.
