ABSTRACT
Adolescents with developmental delays are often included in general education classes, even though their abilities aren't aligned with their school learning demands. Teachers in inclusive classes may not have the required education or the experience to teach students with developmental delays. Therefore, teachers require effective reading techniques to use with these students so they can rightly address the literacy needs of these pupils. This article will provide an overview of reading techniques to use with adolescents with developmental delays. It will address the literacy needs of students with delays and offer strategies for adapting instruction to meet their specific learning requirements.
