3-The student and SLP will use a video recorder to record 2 different scenes.

A. Scene one will have student sitting in the class while the teacher is presenting information the student does not understand. The student will act out not raising hand to ask for help in understanding the new information. The student will then be given a worksheet coordinating with the lesson the teacher just taught and demonstrate not knowing what to do. Student may also demonstrate emotion associated with frustration and confusion about assignment.
