Reading Time: < 1 minute

Often, students have favorite books or characters that enable them to learn from rich literary experiences. Individuals with disabilities should have the opportunity to engage in grade-level texts, connect memories, and learn from favorite books alongside their peers. Accessible texts promote comprehension through the use of adaptations that modify original print formats. This TIPS will outline considerations for choosing appropriate accessible grade-level texts for students with significant cognitive disabilities in inclusive classrooms. See TIPS# 19 for how to create accessible texts if one is not already available.
