I teach reg. ed. pre-school but I have a mentally retarded four year old who is non-verbal (except for a few words) and I include him in every activity we do as a class. However, recently I have come to a stumbling block when we do dictations. For example, when we made a class book and I recorded every child's response to put in the book. I am struggling with how to include him since he can't verbally give me an answer. In the past I just wrote in a response that I knew would be true for him but I feel weird about that since he didn't actually say it to me. Like I am putting words into his mouth. Any ideas on how to include him? Maybe some of the special ed teachers will have some insights. Thanks in advance.
