“A Land We Can Share”: Teaching Literacy to Students with Autism and Related Needs
April 5, 2013
Fantasyland Hotel Conference Centre
During this interactive one-day workshop, participants will learn strategies for including and supporting students with autism and related needs in reading, writing, and listening activities. She will illustrate how teachers can respond to communication differences, sensory differences, movement differences, and learning differences during literacy lessons in their inclusive classrooms.
Ideas for enhancing learning and skills in comprehension, fluency, and vocabulary will be specifically highlighted. Many teacher-tested ideas will be shared throughout the day including story kits, “speak and write”, repeated readings, comprehension corners, etc.
This workshop will be interactive, practical and appeal to all educators. Filled with classroom stories, information, video clips, learning games, and interactive exercises.
Paula is the author or co-author of twelve books including: “You’re Going to Love This Kid”: Teaching Students with Autism in Inclusive Classrooms; “A Land We Can Share”: Teaching Literacy to Students with Autism; Joyful Learning: Active and Collaborative Learning in the Inclusive Classroom; and “From Tutor Scripts to Talking Sticks”: 100 Ways to Differentiate Instruction in K-12 Inclusive Classrooms.
Come and learn about how we can give all students – including those with autism, Down syndrome, and low-incidence disabilities – access to the literate community.
Registration information will be available shortly, including discounts for schools or school districts sending multiple registrants.
