    This curriculum addresses the needs of students with multiple disabilities, including those who are nonverbal. It provides strategies to increase awareness and engagement in story reading while systematically building comprehension.

    Pathways consists of five levels that use prepared scripts to teach story-based lessons. Beginning levels rely heavily on object use throughout the story to make learning more concrete. Objects are then paired with pictures and gradually faded. Students must meet mastery criteria to move through the levels. Pathways includes three Teacher’s Guides, an Implementation Guide, and three storybooks (EarthDance, Jamaica’s Find, and Tar Beach) adapted to a spiralbound format with laminated pages, raised titles, large page numbers, and repeated storylines.

    Hands-on materials include a collection of story-connected objects, materials for tactile adaptations, plus photo and picture vocabulary cards. A Big Button is included to encourage students to communicate during lessons.
