When you teach students with autism and complex instructional needs, you have to meet a wide range of ability levels and social-emotional needs. Readtopia offers an entire set of instructional materials available online to do just that.
Now upper elementary teachers will get the chance to join thousands of middle and high school special education teachers using Readtopia. New thematic units match the maturity level of students in upper elementary.
View this webinar recording and hear from Dr. Karen Erickson, Jeanmarie Jacoby (former special education teacher who used Readtopia with her 4th grade students), and Don Johnston (Readtopia visionary). They will walk through special features of Readtopia Elementary including:
