October 18, 2017 From Presence to Contribution: Strengthening the Inclusion of Students with Complex Needs in the Regular Classroom
The Vermont I-Team, in partnership with the Center on Disability and Community Inclusion, welcomes Erin Sheldon for this one-day conference.
Session Description: Our students with complex needs create challenging dilemmas for educators who want to ensure appropriate instruction that is connected to the general education curriculum. These students usually have limited literacy experiences, which has a significant impact on their literacy abilities as well as their world knowledge. They often use augmentative communication supports, another piece that requires instruction and thoughtful integration. How, then, can we provide comprehensive literacy instruction that is connected to the general education curriculum yet also provides learning opportunities that match the students’ needs? In this interactive session, educators will learn how to anchor instruction in language and concept development and apply predictable and meaningful instructional strategies. We will focus on the elements of comprehensive literacy program and how to support emergent readers and writers of all ages. Lastly, we will share examples and discuss harnessing the general education curriculum as a rich source of interest and variety.
