Changing the Face of                            Literacy with The ASL   Accessible Materials ProjectWhat if professionals, parents, and students had daily access to quality American Sign Language educational materials in the school setting and at home? What if these materials were free andreadily available with the purchase of companion texts, enabling young children and students tohave opportunities for repeated viewings that can support them in developing language, literacy and academic skills? The Accessible Materials Project Team will share multiple examples of ASL accessible instructional materials including assessments, guided reading materials, children’s books and original ASL stories and poetry. We will demonstrate how teachers and families are implementing these materials to accelerate student progress in language, literacy and the acquisition of content standards.
