New Research Demonstrates Gains in Emergent Reading Skills for Adolescents with Autism and Intellectual Disabilities
Date:4/14/2010

lphabet through decontextualized drill and practice. Our study set out to determine: 1) if students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities could improve their reading skills when given daily access to age/ability-appropriate books; and 2) if students made more improvement when taught by teachers who were trained and familiar with teaching comprehensive literacy instruction.”

The results in Table I demonstrate that both student groups (those with teachers who were trained with comprehensive literacy instruction and those who did not receive the training) achieved literacy gains measured in a pre-test/posttest assessment of emergent literacy skills. There was a significant difference between the average pretest and posttest performance for the 43 students. The first group improved their scores by 5%. Students in Group 2 who were taught by teachers trained on comprehensive literacy instruction improved by 8%. These students focused on word and vocabulary instruction, reading comprehension and writing.

“In schools today we need to question our assumptions about the literacy potential of adolescents with severe disabilities and whether our assumptions are based on fact or erroneous perceptions,” said Dr. Hatch. Her additional observations in the research include:

 
  • Teachers and students benefit from and need access to quality age/ability reading materials.
  • Teachers and administrators need to be aware of the value of comprehensive literacy instruction for students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities.
  • Teachers need training in how to deliver comprehensive literacy instruction.'/>"/>
