For students with significant developmental disability, including visually impaired and nonverbal students.

A research-based curriculum for students with significant developmental disabilities who do not consistently use words, pictures, or other symbols to communicate. This curriculum addresses the needs of students with multiple disabilities, including those who are nonverbal. It provides strategies to increase awareness and engagement in story reading while systematically building comprehension.
Pathways to Literacy can help those who do not consistently use words, pictures, or other symbols to communicate. You’ll learn strategies to improve your students’ engagement with stories while systematically building comprehension and picture symbol use. Beginning levels rely heavily on object use throughout each story to make learning more concrete. In later lessons, pictures are used instead of objects and then faded. The scripted lessons model how to adapt and use any storybook to engage students and improve symbol use and comprehension.  You’ll be amazed at what your students will learn!
