Photovoice: Engaging Children with Autism and Their Teachers
Carnahan, Christi R.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v39 n2 p44-50 Nov-Dec 2006
Photovoice is an educational action research tool that embraces visual communication through photography and allows for individualization. In this article, the author describes how a visual teaching method known as photovoice led to improved engagement with peers and learning materials for two young boys with autism. The author also describes how teachers used photovoice to articulate their strengths and needs related to teaching students with autism and other disabilities. Through the photovoice process, students experienced inclusion and participation in the school community. (Contains 2 tables.)
