Welcome to Building Bridges from Emergent to Conventional Literacy

The aim of Building Bridges is to promote achievement in English language arts and literacy for students with significant cognitive disabilities who use augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). This will be accomplished by developing a collection of training and support resources for teachers and related professionals.

Building Bridges is a multi-year project and new resources and supports will be posted on this website as they are developed and evaluated. Check back periodically for updates.

Current Resources:

A series of videos focused on key principles and conditions of learning in ELA and literacy https://www.buildingbridges-ela.com/principles-ela/

Other resources currently available today to support your students with the most significant disabilities in reading, writing and communicators!
