Supporting Literacy for Students with Significant Disabilities

The Supporting Literacy for Students with Significant Disabilities website provides a comprehensive look at the literacy programs utilized by the West Virginia Department of Education. There are three discrete sections: (1) literacy in the classroom and at home, (2) literacy curriculum and instruction, and (3) assessment for students and programs. Discussions include how to present opportunities for literacy, how to assess literacy and reflect it on the IEP, how to provide administrative support, where to locate resources, how to address literacy in children with hearing and vision concerns, how to build and deliver curriculum, and how to assess literacy programs and materials. There are links to websites, blogs, and other online resources. This website offers a great deal of information for program coordinators, educators, and parents.
