Providing Meaningful Grade Aligned ELA to All
Students with intellectual disabilities and autism have been underexposed to grade aligned English/Language Arts (ELA) content, including literacy. This session highlights research to guide participants’ practice in implementing meaningful grade aligned ELA content such as vocabulary, opinion writing, comprehension of fiction and nonfiction text, and student led research for students with low incidence disabilities. A presentation of evidence-based practices such as the use of technology, grade aligned adapted fiction and nonfiction text, and systematic instruction will be featured, as well as ways to promote personalized learning in the classroom.
