Event Description:

This week-long intensive course focuses on emergent literacy instruction for students of all ages with significant disabilities (students who do not know most of their letters/sounds most of the time, aren't engaged during shared storybook experiences, etc.). Participants will learn key emergent literacy instructional practices, as well as how to bridge research into practice for individuals with intellectual disabilities and complex communication needs (AAC and non-AAC users). Included are principles and components of emergent literacy instruction, a range of instructional and assessment strategies, and a variety of technologies and classroom supports for emergent literacy learning.

SCECHs and College Credit will be offered for this course. Due to funding guidelines, 40 seats will be available for active Oakland County Public School and PSA Educators for a cost of $75.00. There are 20 spots available for Oakland County private schools, agencies and out of county participants for a cost of $850.00
