Oct 27, 2018 1:00pm ‐ Oct 27, 2018 2:00pm


Credits: None available.

Standard: $20.00

Description

ASL is gaining popularity as a foreign language in U.S. colleges and high schools. However, the instructional and learning strategies used to teach printed languages to those with dyslexia may not be effective for learning a visual language. To improve automaticity in the recall of ASL vocabulary for students with dyslexia, Skinner’s intervention, Cover, Copy, & Compare was adapted to a multimedia format, providing needed practice for students with dyslexia to acquire ASL; the nature and results of this adaptation are the focus of this presentation.
