Event description
Come learn about and get hands on with Reading Avenue, a comprehensive literacy program that puts learners on the road to reading!

About this Event

Evidence suggests that students who use AAC benefit from instruction that leverages the transactional nature of literacy, language, and communication. This session will address the learning profiles, needs, and challenges of students who use AAC and how best to deliver instruction that supports their literacy, language, and communication development in ways that are integrated, meaningful, and comprehensive. We’ll look at five instructional routines that promote positive outcomes, all of which are the basis of our newest Boardmaker Instructional Solution; Reading Avenue.

Reading Avenue is an accessible, comprehensive literacy instructional program that supports all beginning readers and writers regardless of their communication skills as they learn to read. Developed in partnership with the Center for Literacy and Disability Studies at University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, which is headed by Karen Erickson, it is designed to support all learners, in both general and special educational classrooms. We’ll look at how Reading Avenue provides a roadmap for implementing instructional routines in predictable ways, as well as a methodology for integrating them so that learners have daily exposure to all components of early literacy instruction.

Attendees will:

- learn about how, why and for whom Reading Avenue was developed

- have a full demonstration of how the program is access through Boardmaker Online

-get hands-on with accessing, assigning and working with the resources in the program
