Emergent to Early Conventional Literacy for Students with Autism & Related Disabilities: Apps Included!

Literacy for All!

For students with autism and related disorders, reading instruction must include both word study and a strong focus on reading comprehension. Day 1 will cover assessment ideas and specific strategies to support for all components of balanced literacy including:

• Shared Reading, helping students build language and enjoy reading;

• Guided Reading, using the Anchor / Read / Apply approach;

• Self-Selected Reading, helping students find and access age-respectful, engaging materials;

• Word Study, from phonological awareness to interactive phonics;

The day will include tips for getting everyone onboard and excited about pushing for quality, research-based literacy instruction. For each area, you will see several apps and how to use those apps interactively.
