Lesson plan provides clear pathway. Author has used the proforma structure, preumably endorsed by Michigan State University.  This will mean that other teachers in the university, will be familiar with this structure, making its use an easier task.

Steps are generally broken down into appropriate bits.  It could be better served by providing timing of these bits, and a sense of the overall sesison time. This gives a better idea of how much content needs to be presented in each part of the plan.

The basic premise of providing an interactive environment for students is well suited to the identified target group.  This student cohort will necessarily require a structured and safe environment.

As this is lesson plan is not for supply to students,  the language use is appropriate for teacher use.  However, it would be improved by attending to some of the errors in spelling and grammar.

The ease of use of this lesson plan does rely on being interpreted by an experienced teacher of this particular student cohort, and as such its ease of use will depend on the familiarity of teacher doing the delivery with the nature of the content, in relation to the student cohort.  The content to be covered does require the teacher to prepare material ahead of time, and so this plan would need to be provided to the teacher in plenty of time for them to undertake this preparation of material

Technical Remarks:

Given the plan identifies that the cognitive age of some of the students may be as low as 10 months, the need for intense support of these students to interact with any software will need to be considered.

In terms of other technical literacy, it is difficult to judge from the plan how much the students will use the technology in the lesson.
