This article provides information on the Institute for Academic Access, an umbrella project of the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning and the University of Oregon. The studies have focused on how to increase the success of high school students with disabilities enrolled in rigorous academic courses. The researchers then developed the Content Literacy Continuum (CLC) which provides a vehicle for considering the factors that influence the success of secondary literacy efforts and organization of instruction to increase intensity. There are five levels or types of instruction associated with the CLC such as enhanced content instruction.
