Limited Capacity seats available

The purpose of this session is to build the capacity of educators to provide high quality instruction for students with disabilities in inclusive settings. The presenters, all educators, will demonstrate (1) how to adapt age appropriate books for students with complex learning needs; and (2) how to use adapted books as a part of effective literacy instruction that increases access to content knowledge and teaches important literacy skills. Audience members will learn how to match the learning needs of their students to specific types of adaptations. Presenters will provide a list of resources to assist in that process. OBJECTIVES: By the end of this session, participants will be able to: (1) explain three ways that adapted grade-level books support learning content and literacy knowledge; (2) summarize a process they can use to adapt grade level books for their students; (3) describe three specific adaptations they can make to grade level books to increase access for their students; (4) name three resources they can use to help adapt grade level materials for their students.
