“ 5 to Thrive” Building Pillars of Support-Supporting the Language and Literacy Development of Individuals with Complex Communication Needs: Many students struggle with literacy (reading and writing). In addition, students with complex communication needs using augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) are challenged with the task of not only learning to communicate with a new language system, but simultaneously learning and practicing their literacy skills. With ever-changing technology and advancements in communication and learning tools, this often leaves educators feeling as though they are under-prepared in terms of knowledge and skill regarding the most effective way to support students struggling with language and literacy. This research-based, informative, and engaging session features hands-on demonstrations and activities for participants interested in building the bridge to literacy through technology. Participants will engage in group activities and discussions specific to the technology presented, as well as opportunities to problem solve specific student needs and create example lessons and lesson plans, based on an explicit, systematic and multi-sensory approach to literacy instruction (Including the 5 Pillars-Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Comprehension & Written Expression). Learn about descriptive teaching and embedding the core into lessons throughout the day. Make and Take Literacy activities will provide participants with skills and resources to utilize immediately after the training!
