I think it is really important to not that even though a lot of the time this progress is slow, that it is still there and is very important. It seems to me as if teachers give up on students that are not making giant leaps of progress instead of focusing on the things that they can do and helping them grow from there. It is our job and responsibility to these student to know that they can learn not matter haw slowly and to help them in whatever ways are necessary. Something as simple and bringing books and learning materials into the classroom could make all the difference for these students.

        Yes, I definitely think progress and timing are such important points to consider. You're right - each stage in interacting with literature is vital to their development and is very precious.

      I think this is a really good summary of what emergent literacy is. I completely agree that we must remember that slow progress is still progress. When teaching students with ASD, I think we need to... more

        I agree, we definitely need to remember that a delay in developing literacy skills is common and not be discouraged by that delay. Everyone does learn at a different rate! Thanks for your post.

      I agree with your definition of emergent literacy. I also think that it is important to take all parts of the process in development as a source of improvement. None of our students will learn at the ... more

        You are so right, all of our students will learn at different rates. That is so important to remember during the day-to-day teaching that takes place. When we don't see much progress, or don't see... more
