Assistive Technology: Supporting Literacy for Students with Significant Disabilities

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Students with significant physical and cognitive disabilities are capable of learning to write with appropriate technology, time and teaching. Although emergent writing is important, students with the most significant disabilities often have few opportunities to learn to write (Erickson, Koppenhaver, & Cunningham, 2017). Too often written output is overlooked or printing is the focus rather than the thought processes that mark writing. In this session, participants will learn universal strategies to support their students’ literacy growth in the general education classroom.
