Interactive reading experiences can provide a natural context for the enhancement of language and literacy competencies, but also the additional growth of social skills and confidence. This session will inform the development of a three-step cooperative learning intervention within shared reading activities for the purposeful inclusion of students with intellectual disabilities or Autism who use aided augmentative and alternative communication devices in upper elementary and middle grades. As a result of this session participants will be able to a) identify a three-step cooperative learning intervention to increase social, communication, and academic outcomes for students with intellectual disabilities or autism who use aided augmentative and alternative communication systems b) examine additional opportunities for implementation of cooperative learning during shared reading activities (e.g., during introduction of new material, across a variety of content areas, during social-emotional activities) c) consider strategies for individualization based on learnersŸ?? symbolic level of communication, grade-aligned content areas, and preferences
