Adapted Literature and Lessons

Adapted Lessons | Create Your Own | Resource Library Home

NEW Fully linked downloadable list!
Adapted Literature - Now Fully Searchable!

Below is a list of Adapted Literature available through the Sherlock Center Resource Library. These resources are provided for teachers to help students with severe disabilities participate in the general curriculum. Please limit the use and distribution of these materials accordingly.

Printed color notebook copies of adapted literature are available for loan through the Sherlock Center Resource Library. Some titles are available in electronic format and can be downloaded directly from this website. Stories adapted to PowerPoint include sounds/music and allow a student to "click" along using a computer and mouse/switch.

Additional formats/titles may be available upon request. Contact Sharon Terzian, sterzian@ric.edu or call (401) 456-4731 for information (leave a message if there is no answer). We are continually adding to this list.
Available formats for Adapted Literature:
  • Powerpoint: The adapted literature is presented in an interactive manner. Students can use a mouse or other click device (switch) to move through the pages. An asterisk (*) with the title indicates that the story includes narration. These files are saved as Powerpoint 2010 Shows (ppsx) to include all features (sound, auto navigation, etc.).
  • PDF: The adapted literature is presented using Writing with Symbols and basic text.
  • Printed Notebooks: The adapted literature is presented in notebook format using pictures, symbols, and basic text. Notebooks are loaned through the Sherlock Center Resource Library.
  • Story boxes: We also have a limited number of interactive story boxes not listed here, but specifically designed for hands on activities for children with sensory loss (and only loaned to those classrooms).
You will need the LATEST version of Adobe Acrobat Reader to open PDF documents. To download a free version of Acrobat, click HERE

The PowerPoint formats are saved as .ppsx files, which means they are a SHOW and therefore not editable. Right click to download and save.
A Powerpoint Compatibility viewer is needed for any Powerpoint 2010 file if you have an older version of Powerpoint. It is available for FREE HERE.
