For students to have future academic and personal success, it is important for them to be competent using both oral and written communication. This workshop will focus on using a core language system to support students in developing language to be competitive in the classroom. Participants will learn how to incorporate core language using both low and high tech augmentative and alternative communication (AAC) systems. Case studies will be shared and participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with other participants applying this core language approach with learners across settings. Additional interventions and strategies will focus on teaching students with special needs emergent and conventional literacy skills.
