This two day presentation will offer an instructional framework and practical approaches to address the literacy learning needs of students with significant disabilities including complex communication needs. The focus will be on comprehensive approaches to emergent literacy with an emphasis on application and use rather than skill mastery. This presentation will include videos and work samples that help demonstrate that it is possible for students with complex needs to develop critical early literacy and communication abilities.
This course is open to any and all interested educators and related services personnel concerned with supporting communication and literacy in these students. Additionally, parents are encouraged to attend.
