Course Description:

This course explores literacy skill acquisition as a lifelong process that is important for all students in order to achieve a high quality life. Traditionally, students with multiple disabilities have not had the same access to early literacy experiences and learning that their peers without disabilities have experienced. Through participation in this course, participants will learn about the research base for best practice in literacy learning including assessment and instruction for all students and strategies for overcoming the challenges students with multiple disabilities experience. Participants will explore strategies for adapting instruction, materials, and assistive technology options to design and implement literacy experiences/instruction for a student with multiple disabilities.
