Are your IEP teams using student data to select the best type of reading accommodations?
There’s no more second-guessing with a new FREE guide developed by two IEP team leaders, Dr. Denise DeCoste and Linda Bastiani Wilson, MA.
The Protocol for Accommodations in Reading framework (PAR), guides data-based reading accommodation recommendations-human reader, audiobook, or text reader (like Read:OutLoud). Anyone on the IEP team can administer PAR to systematize how reading accommodations are recommended on a student level or across the school district.
PAR Includes the Tools You Need to Be Successful
Protocol—guides your team to collect data to compare independent reading, reading with a human reader and reading with a text reader
Reading Samples—provides eight reading passages (four narrative, four expository) and vocabulary questions for each grade level, grades 3rd through 10th
Quizzes—contains comprehension quizzes for each reading passage—factual, topic-related, inferential and vocabulary
Multiple Formats– reading passages are available in Word, PDF and ePUB so that you can use them in any accessible eBook manager, or within your text reader (like Read:OutLoud)
