Howard County, “Emergent Literacy Ideas for Complex Learners”
October 11, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Emergent literacy requires a student to be an ACTIVE learner, have ways to communicate (not necessarily verbal), and have a trusting relationship with at least one person. His or her environment must provide many experiences for concept and vocabulary development, opportunities for joint mutual attention and use the learner’s preferences to make connections. Come find ways to put this all together for your student with complex needs and who may be communicating at a pre-symbolic level.
This presentation will discuss reasons and strategies to connect communication, object schedules, and literacy related experiences to daily routines and regular school activities. Specific attention will be given to students with sensory loss combined with physical challenges and cognitive delays.
Please come with a student in mind.
Bring a copy of his/her IEP and daily schedule!
