In one of my 1001 carriers I worked with deaf kids and mental delay ones, is a pleasure to educate them and a chalange in the same time.
Did you try to add "an addictive" song to the images for diabet education, each step (image) with a part of the song.
I teached literature on deaf chids using this technique, images draw on black table, each image for each section of the story and clapping hands, or feet...."the Snow white brushed the floor..."swiiimp, swiiiimp, swiimp" plus the image of this section .... you put togheter the helpers for memory, images and sounds...perfect!
