AT for your Child with Complex Cognitive Needs: Adapted & Online Curriculum

Meeting Description:

Part 1 of a 3-part series

For students with significant intellectual disabilities and physical and/or complex communication needs, the classroom has a multitude of barriers to learning. With AEM, AAC and other Assistive Technologies available, educators have often pieced together opportunities for "participation". Several publishers and manufacturers have been creating universally designed curriculum from the ground up approach.

This webinar will include a brief introduction of what a curriculum should entail and what we should be looking for in an accessible and universally designed curriculum when we are talking about students who have a first disability in the intellectual realm. There will be overviews of several curricular options.

Session Level:  Beginner


After the session is over, you will receive:

  • A certificate of attendance
  • A 10% discount on any AbleNet assistive technology products (this promotion does not include curriculum products)

After you register a confirmation comes up which contains the option to add webinar to your Outlook, Lotus Notes or Google Calendars. If you "add"  it automatically adjusts to your time zone.
