Access Language Arts iPad App
Highly effective in teaching language arts skills
Access Language Arts iPad App was created by Attainment and East Tennessee State University and is based on the curriculum Teaching to Standards: English Language Arts. Research has shown both the app and curriculum to be highly effective in teaching language arts skills, that are directly aligned to the Common Core Standards, to students with an intellectual disability or autism.
