Project Core (A Stepping-Up Technology Implementation Grant Directed by the Center for Literacy and Disability Studies)


The primary goals of Project Core are two-fold:

  • Empower teachers and classroom professionals to deliver access to a Universal Core vocabulary and communication instruction during the naturally occurring academic and daily routines of the school day.
  • Improve the academic achievement of students with significant cognitive disabilities as evidenced by gains in their communication and literacy skills, and ultimately in their end-of-year assessments.

This site includes:

  • Universal Core Vocabulary Communication Systems
  • Professional Development Modules
  • Presentations and Publications
  • Implementation Resources
