The article is devoted to the problem of teaching students with disabilities in English lessons. The urgency of this problem lies in the fact that it is necessary to ensure the general cultural, personal and cognitive development of children with disabilities. The authors proposed methods used for productive teaching for students with disabilities, namely, multimedia and gaming technologies, case technologies and problem-based learning. In the paper, the authors propose an example of some of the technologies used while working in general education institutions and used when working with children with disabilities in the process of inclusive education. These technologies will help teachers develop the skills and abilities of foreign language communication in children with disabilities.

Key words: inclusive education, innovative teaching models, teaching children with disabilities, English, foreign language communication, multimedia technologies, case technology, game technologies
