Literacy instruction can be challenging for students with complex communication needs. Interventions require a number of options to provide enough opportunities for learning through a balance of approaches based around literacy and language strategies. In this 3-part webinar series, we will discuss three different interventions for emergent level students that can be easily added to your everyday schedule.

For the second webinar, we will review a literacy curriculum that provides active participation opportunities for students that use AAC to learn basic reading skills including sound blending, decoding and more through a systematic direct instruction format. Extension activities and examples of how the Accessible Literacy Learning (ALL) program has been utilized within a number of different classrooms will be discussed.

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will list at least three components of effective literacy instruction.
2. Participants will list at least five appropriate reading skills for emergent readers.
3. Participants will identify two adaptations to allow for active participation for a student with complex communication needs.
