Multi-modal materials used to introduce or extend literacy (listening, speaking, reading, writing) experiences set the stage for meaningful participation in school and life beyond the classroom. Alternative ways to organize, display and arrange, interact with and respond to information produces greater understanding of concepts. Complementing books, theme-related materials can center on competencies such as self-help, social skills, fine motor, gross motor, emotional, early math/literacy, categorization/matching, etc. Scaffolds created or displayed with “everyday technologies” such as mobile technology, commonly used software, web-based tools, and classroom manipulatives provide a multitude of creative opportunities in which learners can thrive. This session will feature adapted book kits, MathLit kits, and core vocabulary kits available for checkout via the Assistive Technology Lending Library as well as resources for participants to develop their own kits.
