Attainment Access Language App

Interested in a literacy app for students who benefit from modified text and supports? Attainments Access Language App (for iPad only, regularly 39.99) provides access to frequently read books in a modified format. iTunes description of the Attainment app states:

“Access Language Arts app is based on the curriculum Teaching to Standards: English Language Arts, which was created by Attainment Company and the University of North Carolina Charlotte. Research has shown both the app and curriculum to be highly effective in teaching language arts skills, that are directly aligned to the Common Core Standards, to students with an intellectual disability or autism.
The four literature pieces chosen for read alouds in Access Language Arts app are among those typically used in the middle school curriculum. The adapted stories in the app are Neighbors, Sadako and a Thousand Paper Cranes, The Diary of Anne Frank, and We Beat the Streets.
Components of systematic instruction are embedded in the app’s script are: constant time-delay procedure, system of least intrusive prompts, and feedback.”

Although this might not be an app for your OT mTool Kit, for those OT’s who supply AT support or if you share resources with parents and teachers, Attainment’s Access Language Arts app looks like a great literacy support for students who require a modified curriculum.
