Increasing Literacy Outcomes for Students with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities
This session will focus on providing literacy instruction to students with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) through the use of story-based lessons of grade appropriate texts and systematic instruction of the five components of reading (i.e., phonemic awareness, phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, fluency). Specifically, participants will gain understanding of prompting literacy development through evidence based practices found effective for students with severe disability.
