Product Description

In this book, the framework for the Oelwein method of literacy development in students with special needs is based on the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDLs key features are: Learning is an active process and is personal because it begins with individuals therefore chose materials that are meaningful and relevant to the child; Instruction is engaging  lessons are structured to involve the students natural thinking processes and interests. In the case of autism spectrum disorder, Down Syndrome and learning disabilities, this means employing a visual teaching approach; Instruction is individualized. Using personal content that is meaningful to the students encourages participation; The subject content and skill work is accessible to the learner. Using motivating content, materials and an accessible method for learning will minimize behavioral problems when the student wants to engage and frustration levels are minimal.

It is these principals that govern all of the literacy curriculum content in this book and how to teach it.
