Description Specially Designed Instruction for Students with Moderate to Severe Cognitive Disabilities: Focus on Academic Skills (Grades 6 - 12)

This workshop will present ways to design instructional activities for middle and high school students with moderate to severe disabilities that address the content areas of math, science and language arts literacy. Participants will learn how to link individual student learning to the student learning objectives of the state model curriculum. The workshop will introduce ways to scaffold instruction so that students can learn the same content as their non-disabled peers. Through sample activities participants will review and create sample activities related to grade level standards that can support students with moderate to severe disabilities in accessing the general education curriculum.

Audience: General education and special education teachers - Grades 6-12
