48. Literacy for All: Literacy Instruction and Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities
Literacy is a set of skills that opens a world of possibilities for all students, including students with significant cognitive disabilities. Despite the functionality of literacy, schools experience challenges when developing and implementing literacy instruction for students with significant cognitive disabilities. This session will begin the discussion about what literacy instruction looks like for this group of students by discussing the definition of literacy, examining the research literature, and providing questions to help guide the development of literacy instruction.
