How Students with Complex Communication Needs Can Access the Common Core

Here's a resource for anyone looking for examples of how students with complex communication needs (CCN) can access the Common Core Standards for English Language Arts. It highlights the importance of communication for accessing the ELA standards, makes the case for providing AAC systems to students with CCN, and how to go about deploying AAC effectively to achieve the standards. The document was created by Smita Worah Ph.D. and is being used in CT.

Checkout "Providing Access to Common Core Language Arts Standards to Students who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC)" at this Connecticut State Education Resource Center (SERC) web page.
