This webinar will focus on developing and implementing meaningful distance learning programs for students with more intense needs who typically participate in highly structured and intensely staffed special day class programs. The challenges of developing meaningful opportunities for these students to make progress on goals, while separated from familiar routines, accessible learning environments and skilled support will be addressed. Presenters will share the integrated approach being utilized within the Placer County Office of Education programs serving students with multiple and low incidence disabilities and autism to build accessible distance learning.
Specific outcomes will include:
• Sharing expectations for distance learning and special education service delivery for students with more intense needs.
• Sharing resources for building weekly classroom and individualized student learning plans that ensure ongoing opportunities to make progress across key and essential skills.
• Sharing resources for supporting teams in integrated planning and implementation across disciplines and curricular areas.
• Sharing options for service delivery for related service providers within an integrated distance learning model.
• Sharing resources for planning and supporting the use of specialized equipment and assistive technology tools in a distance learning model.
