Stephanie over at Teaching in Room 6 is having a linky party. What is your Go-To book? I think that one of best books around about teaching literacy to children with severe disabilities is "Children with Disabilities: Reading and Writing the Four-Blocks Way" by Karen Erickson and David Koenhaver.
I saw Karen Erickson at a conference and she is absolutely amazing. If you ever get a chance to see her, you should. This book will give you some excellent literacy ideas for children with mild to severe disabilities and for children that use augmentative and alternative communication.
The book is written
with sample classrooms and children, offering practical real life examples, and sample IEP goals. It is not necessary to have an understanding of the the Four-Blocks framework to use the ideas in this book. The suggestions can be used in any literacy program. If you have a special needs child in your class, you need this book.
