Play-Based Equitable Early Language and Literacy

Participants will engage in an interactive session on the new Illinois Comprehensive Literacy plan and how to apply play-based and developmentally appropriate literacy strategies to ensure access to speaking, reading, writing, and listening for all students, including children with disabilities and those that are identified as multilingual learners.
