This case study researched the effects of graphic organizer usage in a literacy intervention. The participant was a fifth grade girl with a speech and language impairment and an intellectual disability. She was referred to the researcher by the elementary school because she struggled with literacy skills. The intervention was created to meet several of the common core standards and was executed in compliance with the state educational laws. The intervention sessions met for sixty minutes at a time for a total of fourteen meetings. During that time the researcher and participant worked in a one on one setting, using grade appropriate textbook and graphic organizers. The results of the intervention suggest that graphic organizers are effective tools to use when teaching literacy skills to students with disabilities.
