Discussion 2: Resource List

Communication is a critical aspect in learning. The acquisition of communication skills assists students in accessing and applying information and the ability to comprehend and acquire knowledge, as well as effectively interacting with their peers. Language acquisition and development can be a difficult task for students with communication delays, resulting in difficulties with expressive and receptive language, norms and expectations of communication interactions, and simple rules of conversation. As a result, it is necessary for special education teachers to provide students with meaningful opportunities to acquire and practice communication skills using a variety of response activities. Having a repertoire of effective research-based interventions is essential for special education teachers when working with students with communication delays.
For this Discussion you will post a draft of the resource list you are creating for your Assignment. You will add to your current toolkit of resources by selecting strategies to assist students with communication delays, including interventions useful for working with both the core curriculum as well as a functional communication skills curriculum.

A draft of the resource list of at least 10 evidence-based intervention strategies to support students with language and communication delays that you are creating for your Assignment.
