This Familiar Sounds lesson plan also includes:
To foster concept development and auditory discrimination skills, learners with visual impairments listen to identify a variety of common sounds. The teacher makes recordings of various sounds, including those found in the home, at the orchestra, zoo, and in the community. Then he/she plays the sound and gives learners clues to help them contextualize and identify it. Note: The lesson works to develop a very important skill and can be modified to foster safety skills.
