EDUC 6724 - Literacy Interventions in Special Education♦


(3 sem. cr.) Reading, writing, and communicating are literacy competencies that impact the quality of life for all people, especially individuals with disabilities; however, learning and behavioral disabilities often have a major influence on literacy development, thus requiring special educators who are well-versed in this area of learning and teaching. In this course, education professionals learn to identify reading and writing disabilities and collaborate with others to devise appropriate and effective interventions, including the use of assistive technologies. They engage in a variety of conceptual and application-based assignments that emphasize progress monitoring and ongoing assessment of literacy skills, strategies, and dispositions.
