Literacy begins at birth and is a lifelong process for all children. When a child has a significant disability, including sensory loss, parents and professionals may be unsure how to proceed to ensure an optimal literacy-learning environment. Evidence-based literacy practices will be highlighted that can be implemented in both home and school routines. Dr. Tanni Anthony will be the presenter. Dr. Anthony is the Director of Program Instruction/Related Services with the Exceptional Student Services Unit within the Colorado Department of Education. She also serves as the State Consultant on Visual Disabilities and the Project Director of the Colorado Services for Children and Youth with Combined Vision and Hearing
