Adapted books build language and vocabulary skills.
Adapted books give those with very limited verbal communication an opportunity to participate more in class and feel that sense of inclusion and accomplishment.
Adapted books take learning into kinesthetic, build comprehension, vocabulary and key concepts, all while assessing student comprehension
Adapted books are quick and easy to pull out for a small group or whole group lesson to make learning interactive and engaging.
Adapted books can be used to target cross-curricular skills because adapted books teach so much more than reading skills: cross-curricular topics (like math, science, history!), social skills, fine motor skills, reciprocity of language, and more!
Adapted books help increase reading stamina, or the amount of time a student can focus and engage in text.
Adapted books motivate students to attend and participate in a lesson.
Adapted books illustrate complex ideas, processes and situations in a simple and clear manner.
Adapted books provide opportunities to target multiple IEP goals or one specific IEP goal with just one adapted book.
