Abstract: “The purpose of this article is to illustrate strategies for engaging students with significant intellectual disabilities in natural, age-appropriate, communication-based literacy instruction within inclusive settings. Examples at the elementary and secondary level are provided, with particular focus on increasing students’ reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills within multiple contexts. Strategies for use in three different inclusive contexts are provided: General education classrooms, the school community, and the general community.” [Abstract]
