The session will include valuable video clips to illustrate each component and step to building actual reading skills (not emergent reading skills) for individuals with Rett Syndrome.

Within the framework of the Balanced Approach to Reading, Guided Reading is a key component. Participants will learn how to teach students to actually do the reading versus only being read to. Video and technology demonstrations will delineate this process of building silent reading skills and incorporating communication, which is an essential platform for both building and assessing comprehension.

This course should take approximately 4 3/4 hours to complete if you go straight through. Of course, you can go back and listen to lectures and watch videos as many times as you need.

COURSE OBJECTIVES

Participants will be able to:

  • define guided reading and be able to implement an instructional sequence for guided reading.
  • identify strategies and procedures for supporting/teaching silent reading for students with Rett Syndrome.
  • identify and implement reading strategies and the instruction of reading comprehension skills within text.
  • identify accommodations to the reading process to build reading with comprehension for students with Rett Syndrome.
  • identify supportive strategies that alleviated the “apraxia barrier” to the girls’ learning.
  • construct IEP Objectives to support Guided Reading based on the models in the webinar.
  • identify options for adapting Guided Reading Books for beginning readers with Rett Syndrome.

  • for the reading part 1 course does the student need to have a tobii or some other form of eyegaze communication? the student that i work with is non verbal and non ambulatory

  • I have the same question
    The Tobii eye gazing instrument is needed or not necessarily

    • Hello Sam. The foundations of guided reading are demonstrated in both soft and high-tech in this course. A Tobii eye gaze device is not required but recommended. The goal here is to provide all types of access a student would need in order to follow along in guided reading instruction. This can be accomplished with partner assisted scan and allowing for choice making. Hope that helps!

Our favorite time of the week! Susan Hanlin Norwell reads and models We Don’t Eat Our Classmates by Ryan T. Higgins. Join the fun!

"It's the first day of school for Penelope Rex, and she can't wait to meet her classmates. But it's hard to make human friends when they're so darn delicious! That is until Penelope gets a taste of her own medicine and finds she may not be at the top of the food chain after all..."

Readers will gobble up this hilarious story from award-winning author-illustrator Ryan T. Higgins.
