Adapting Books: Ready, Set, Read!: EAT: Equipment, Adaptations, and Technology
Schoonover, Judith; Norton-Darr, Sally
Journal of Occupational Therapy, Schools & Early Intervention, v9 n1 p19-26 2016
Developing multimodal materials to introduce or extend literacy experiences sets the stage for literacy success. Alternative ways to organize, display and arrange, interact and respond to information produces greater understanding of concepts. Adaptations include making books easier to use (turning pages or holding), and text easier to read (scaffolding) and to remember, consistent with the principles of Universal Design for Learning. Scaffolds created or displayed with "everyday technologies" such as mobile technology, commonly used software, web-based tools, and classroom manipulatives provide a multitude of creative opportunities for everyone to engage in reading activities.
