non verbal students

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I have two non-verbal high school students. The first student is totally non-verbal with only a few basic sounds. She is a really cute girl but she can get loud giggling or laughing. She is very disruptive and I don't know how to help her. She does understand shhhh or finger over lips.
My other student can talk. When we want him to talk he is very quiet. When we don't want him to talk he can be very loud laughing and making silly noises.
Any advice???

How about using some visuals-quiet voice,etc. You can post them in the room and also have copies with you to remind students how to behave. Teach the visual and eventually just hold it up and point. Review the rules before each lesson, story, etc.

Are they language learners?

I think you can use visual cues like voice level signals: 1 - being zero voices, 2 - whisper voices, 3 - classroom voices, 4 - playground voices, 5 - emergency.

If they are language learners, let me know, I may help.
