Exercise Overview Content Space Salvage Progression As students work through the exercise it changes in a few ways: • it begins with speech sounds that have been digitally altered; as students progress through the exercise, the processing level decreases, and eventually the syllables or words are presented using natural speech • the grid size increases: 4, 8, and 16 objects Introductory Level Students begin by working through an introductory level that provides instructions, modeling, and supports (audio feedback and/or visual cues). It uses speech processing level 1, with a subset of highly differentiated words from the standard levels, and all three grid sizes. This level helps students learn the task and determine an effective strategy for making matches.
