Adapting Printed Text
for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities
JULY 31, 2014: Plan for a day of learning, exploration, and accessing resources!
Preparation for the Workshop
Prior to the workshop, please take a look at the resources in the LiveBinder. You may access the LiveBinder in one of two ways; QR code or bit.ly address shown below.
While checking out the resources, please go to the "Online Resources" tab. Under this tab are two sub tabs in gray for grade level adapted books that are free to download and save: Tar Heel Reader and Sherlock Center. Please choose 1 or 2 books for the grade level(s) that you teach to download and save for the workshop. Please make sure to download and save a Powerpoint version of one of the books you choose to be used in one of the breakout sessions.
Once saved you may bring your own computer with the books already loaded or you may use one of the ESC's laptops to access the file that you have either emailed to yourself or saved to a dropbox. During the training, you will be given limited time to download additional books and save onto a flash drive that will be provided.
