Multiple Disabilities

The need for access to curriculum for all students requires teachers to be knowledgeable about effective literacy instruction. Students with multiple and severe disabilities need a balanced approach to learning, encompassing both skill-based and meaning-based strategies. Literacy can be broadly defined as acts of reading, writing, listening, and speaking. By defining literacy to include communication, we confirm that every student can make progress toward their literacy goals.

 

AKCAM works closely with SESA’s Multiple Disabilities team to help develop and implement educational programs promoting literacy. In this section, families and educators will find a comprehensive list of resources for targeting and overcoming print barriers.
