19. Using PPD with Shared Stories for Increased Comprehension
Sunday January 31, 2021 - 12:01 AM - Online
Sunday February 28, 2021 - 12:01 AM - Online
This session describes an easy to use strategy (PPD; Picture Plus Discussion) for increasing student access to grade-level read alouds. Use of text read alouds is an emerging tool for increasing access to instruction; however, students with intellectual disabilities often still require support for access to age-appropriate texts. The PPD intervention has been shown to increase student comprehension as measured by story retell, and this session will discuss the steps for implementation, including how to locate relevant representative images.
Participants will be able to:
- Describe the benefits of unadapted text access.
- Identify the steps to conducting the PPD intervention.
- State the process for locating relevant representative images for PPD.
