Literacy Based Curriculum
LITERACY BASED INSTRUCTION
Literacy Based Instruction provides exposure and exploration of authentic literature. This program is aligned to the students’ individualized education program (IEP) goals and lessons are differentiated based on the diverse needs of the students. Students use a variety of methods to communicate understanding of basic reading skills and comprehension using one-step devices, alternative augmentative communication (AAC) devices, gestures, eye gaze and verbal language. Literature is hand selected according to the students’ developmental level and is used to help students make text to self and text to environment connections.
