Students with disabilities, especially significant disabilities, are many times overlooked in the general education classroom as well as in self-contained classrooms when it comes to learning to read. Educators do not always realize the potential individuals with disabilities have for accessing print when taught using research based interventions. Students with disabilities need to be prepared for future transition goals from the time they begin school. Reading is an essential skill for transition and other goals that students with even very significant disabilities can attain. This research discussion will provide participants with an opportunity to learn a research -based strategy (constant time delay) that can be used in inclusive classroom settings to teach students with disabilities to read sight words as well as other content area vocabulary. Increasing student sight word recognition alleviates overload of cognitive capacities freeing up cognitive resources that allow students to make progress in reading. This strategy can be used at all levels of education, in all settings, and can be implemented by a variety of professionals and, in some cases, a peer student learner giving all students more opportunities for access and meaningful engagement in the inclusive settings.
