The Accessible Literacy Learning (ALL) Reading Program is an evidence-based reading instruction program that has been proven highly effective in teaching students with disabilities to read. Developed by Drs. Janice Light and David McNaughton of Penn State, ALL eliminates the need for oral responses, helping even non-verbal students learn to read.

Product Information Sheet

“Finally! In the ALL, educators and others have access to a research-based, balanced literacy curriculum for individuals with significant disabilities… Light and McNaughton have done these individuals and their families a tremendous service that will have a lasting, positive impact on their lives.”

  • Pat Mirenda, Ph.D., Professor, Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology and Special Education, The University of British Columbia

The ALL Reading Program is for any student with language or physical impairments who is having difficulty learning to read. It enables students to bypass oral responses at all stages of instruction, allowing even the most challenged students to learn to read. Specially designed to meet the needs of individuals with complex communication and physical access challenges, it also supports individuals who require augmentative and alternative communication (AAC). The program has been used successfully by students with:

  • Language delays
  • Developmental delays
  • Autism
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Down syndrome
  • Physical impairments
  • Speech impairments
  • Multiple disabilities
Teacher and Student

Evidence-based reading instruction
The ALL Reading Program was developed by Drs. Janice Light and David McNaughton of Penn State University as part of the AAC-RERC. They applied the recommendations of the National Reading Panel from 2000 to their work with students with complex communication needs to create a structured and measurable method for teaching reading. Each and every student they worked with during this study achieved basic literacy.

Using ALL with your reading curriculum
The ALL Reading Program is compatible with your current literacy curriculum because it combines direct instruction in key foundational skills (phonological awareness, letter-sound correspondences) with meaningful reading experiences.

With carefully chosen targets and foils for every skill, and several books for shared reading, the ALL Reading Program delivers everything you need so you don't need to create your own materials. The ALL Reading Program provides concrete methods, easy-to-use materials and clear instruction on how to use them. In addition to being a key instructional tool for classroom teachers, ALL can be used by parents, classroom aides and paraprofessionals to help students learn to read. It includes:

  • Measurable goals that are easily adapted for IEPs
  • Comprehensive teaching scripts for every component skill
  • Tools for tracking student progress
  • Clear guidance for adjusting lessons based on student performance


The included resource CD even has the files in Boardmaker format in case you need to modify any of the materials to meet your students' unique needs.

"I would heartily recommend this carefully planned resource on literacy learning to all teachers and parents who have children who struggle to learn to read due to limited speech production. They will find it an immensely helpful guide."

FEATURED STORY

Andrea Hosmer and Khalil Moore

Andrea is an Inclusion Support Teacher who has been working for students with disabilities for 4 years. She is interested in early literacy, positive behavior support, and assistive technology.

Khalil is an 8 year old boy in second grade. He is very happy, has a great sense of humor, and loves to be social with his peers. Khalil has cortical vision impairments and is non-verbal. He controls the movement of his head only. In the video you see him using 2 gooseneck switches positioned at either side of his head to say, "yes" and "no" on voice output devices. Khalil uses a low-tech communication board with partner assisted live voice scanning to communicate. The format of the ALL instruction aligns perfectly with his communication boards.



"I enjoy using ALL because it provides a comprehensive set of materials that I can pick up and use with a variety of students right away. The format is easy to follow and accessible to all students."
