After anchor activities are set, vocabulary words have been explored and background knowledge has been built it is now time to read! During this 50-minute Webinar we will continue to explore how building our student’s schema can really pay off. Join us as we also learn how to use our AT tools to model using Text-to-Speech, to read our text, and use the CROWD in the CAR during interactive and shared reading activities. We will also explore how to make sure our activities continue to be meaningful and engaging for our students. Adding a little STEAM is always a win!
Participants will be able to…
- Describe CAR and CROWD.
- State the importance of modeling AT to our AAC/AT users.
- Describe three meaningful activities/resources to increase reading engagement.
