Common Core Aligned Health Units/Lessons for Students with Multiple Disabilities
This webinar will discuss ways to infuse health and adaptive daily living skills in the classroom and will focus on diet and nutrition. I will go through a unit which is aligned with the common core but created for students with multiple disabilities. The lessons will utilize large and small group instruction, ways of including IEP goal alignment, and skill based learning infused with content.
