More on Shadow Light Cuing

Shadow Light Cuing was previously discussed as an excellent way to unobtrusively nurture expressive communication. This clinical strategy is most effective when working in a group where the Primary Facilitator is creating numerous communicative opportunities and Secondary Facilitators (e.g. personal assistant, assistant teacher, speech-language pathologist, occupational therapist, volunteer) are serving as the ‘silent coach’ providing a hierarchy of light prompts to assist students in capitalizing on these communicative opportunities. For more information on the benefits of a Primary-Secondary Facilitator Model please refer to this previous blog post,

I recently found an LED keychain flashlight that I am thrilled to say works great for shadow light cuing. Just do an internet search for Home Kitty LED flashlight and several sources will appear with considerable variation in their pricing.
