Recording: Beyond Wh Questions: Narrative Language and Story Grammar for Students with Intensive Support Needs

Stories are a big part of how we understand, explain, hope, and relate to the world and are a regular part of everyday classroom instruction. In this session, we will explore tools and techniques for supporting students' reading and listening comprehension within narrative language and stories for all students, in particular, those with the most intensive support needs in communication, learning, and access.

Recordings: Reading & Writing with Significant Disabilities with Jessica Conrad & Jena Fahlbush

Simple, practical, and use-it-tomorrow: this two-part session is all about reading and writing instruction for students with the most significant disabilities. Focused specifically on students who have complex learning needs, you'll have the opportunity to explore key instructional strategies and tools and how to work them into in a busy classroom. In the reading recording, you'll find ideas for supporting students' engagement in books, teaching decoding skills, and free resources that students with Print Disabilities receive through the Indiana Center for Accessible Materials.
