Workshop in Little Rock, Arkansas, May 11, 2017

Emergent Balanced Literacy For Elementary Students with Disabilities:  Apps Included!

The prospect of teaching students with significant disabilities to begin to read with comprehension and begin to write generatively can seem overwhelming.  This presentation will cover:  assessment for students who are difficult to assess, shared reading (developing a love of reading, and supporting language through reading), emergent writing (beginning to write with symbols, words, and the alphabet), self-selected story listening (listening to and interacting with a range of engaging books across a range of genre), alphabet interaction and phonological awareness (understanding spoken language at the word, syllable, and letter level).  Throughout the day, you will see student samples, videos, and creative use of apps.
