Students will examine the language-literacy connection or the impact of language and language delays in reading and writing. Specific research validated instructional strategies focusing on the assessment and development of social and academic language skills are emphasized. This course explores assistive technology as a research supported tool to improve access to and participation in the general education curriculum. In addition, students will examine assistive technology and secondary transition. Students will integrate assistive technology in lesson planning to meet students' individual needs.
