Literacy is an important outcome of education. Misconceptions, however, often prevent some students from having access to literacy instruction. This session explores four myths about literacy learning: 1) Some children with disabilities do not need to learn to read and write; 2) Using speech to communicate is a prerequisite to reading and writing; 3) Children cannot have an intellectual disability and a reading disability; and 4) Using assistive technology (AT) to read and write is cheating. Join us in this fun session to debunk these myths and share other myths about literacy learning you have experienced or observed.
