Taking The IEP Into The Classroom
This webinar is for new teachers who have students on modified programs and particularly those working for the first time with students (K-12) with severe multiple disabilities. We will take a look at different ways to thread IEP objectives into classroom, school-based and community activities. This webinar will also help to prioritize and simplify some of the key roles of the classroom teacher which can enhance meaningful participation for students on modified programs. Theme planning and parallel participation will also be addressed as planning tools to maximize learning and participation for all students. This webinar will help teachers and teaching assistants take their students' IEP objectives into the classroom.
