Dr. Barbara Sorter

To increase oral language development for students with autism and/or intellectual disabilities, Dr. Sorter and Mrs. Anderson will create a parent resource literacy room.  The resource room will provide parents with training on how to improve students’ communication, critical thinking, and collaboration skills through the use of interactive literacy bags.  Parents will  learn how to use educational games, materials, and assistive technology devices to help engage and motivate students with severe disabilities, many of whom are also English Language Learners (ELLs).
