Most students with complex communication needs enter adulthood without acquiring functional literacy skills.* The ALL Reading Program is an evidence-based approach designed specifically to teach basic reading skills to non-verbal students who require augmentative and alternative communication (AAC).

The ALL™ Reading Program approach

ALL is designed specifically to teach basic reading skills to non-verbal students who require augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). Developed by researchers Dr. Janice Light and Dr. David McNaughton of Penn State University, it enables students to bypass oral responses at all stages of instruction, allowing even the most challenged students to learn to read. By following the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) philosophy, the ALL program is able to support learners with a broad range of ages and abilities.

The ALL Reading Program is based on the recommendations of the American National Reading Panel by providing:

  • bottom-up instruction that builds component skills (phonological awareness, letter-sound correspondences)
  • top-down instruction focused on meaningful reading experiences and reading activities based on student interest

Comprehensive

The ALL Reading Program teaches the six foundational skills of reading:

  • Sound-Blending: build words by blending their component sounds
  • Phoneme Segmentation: break words down into individual sounds
  • Letter-Sound Correspondence: recognize sounds represented by each of the letters and vice versa
  • Single Word Decoding: apply knowledge of letter-sound correspondences and sound blending skills to “sound out” regular words
  • Sight Word Recognition: recognize a word without sounding it out (e.g., light, dinosaur)
  • Shared Reading: decode or recognize each word in sequence, access the meaning of the words/sentences, process the words/sentences together in sequence to derive the full meaning of the text, then relate it to prior experience and knowledge

Tobii Dynavox ALL in teacher mode

Flexible

  1. Multi-platform availability – ALL software is available for use on the technology you already have – iPads, Windows operating systems, and Tobii Dynavox I-Series, 1-110 Indi, Indi 7 and EM12 AAC devices.
  2. Student tracking – Tracking is available for an unlimited number of students and offers adjustments to instructions as you go. You can also review overall results for each session or for individual activities within each session.
  3. Three modes of instruction –  Practice and Independent Modes provide instructions and prompting to learners, so that they can work as independently as possible. Teacher Assisted Mode provides an opportunity for the teacher to provide all or some of the instruction and prompting, with ALL providing the rest.
  4. Customizable instruction – Customizing instruction is easy and helps to increase the learner’s interest. Create high interest words and custom books directly in the app.
  5. Student insight – Viewing a student's progress is straightforward which makes it easy to quantify instructional goals and get them ready for IEPs.

Relevant

The ALL app currently contains over 40 reading books, including some that teach CVC (consonant vowel consonant) words. The seasonal books help students to participate in and read about time-relevant topics while working to build literacy skills. They add more opportunities to learn about new concepts amd topics.
