December 10, 2018

Using Picture Books to Engage and Educate Children with Disabilities

  • Monday, January 28th, 2019, 12 - 1 PM EST

  • Monday, February 11th, 2019, 12 – 1 PM EST

  • Monday, March 4th, 2019, 12 – 1 PM EST

Interactive read alouds encourage children to participate throughout the read aloud experience, whether asked to answer questions about the text, recite phrases repeated in the story, or act out the plot. Current research shows that this fun interaction offers an increase in language skills, vocabulary development, and engagement when done with targeted activities that support students’ learning objectives. Interactive read alouds were found to specifically increase the verbal participation in children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Yet students with disabilities often do not have the same opportunities to participate in the read aloud experience as their same age peers.
