This week, you read about reading and reading problems, factors associated with reading disability, providing instruction and intervention strategies, integrating reading and writing, and providing literacy instruction for students with special needs. For this discussion, pay attention to the issues that affect literacy instruction for students with exceptionalities. Also, consider research-based instructional strategies which improve literacy skills.

What instructional strategies have you utilized or have knowledge of to promote literacy for students with exceptionalities? What areas of weaknesses were targeted? As a special education specialist, would you promote multisensory methods to more effectively teach literacy to diverse learners, and why?
