Providing Students with Mild Disabilities Accommodations on Online Educational Platforms 

Dates: Monday, March 30th
Details: If our students can't access the content being provided online, we are not only increasing the gap between them and their general education peers but also likely adding stress and frustration to their and their parents' lives in this already challenging time. Join this webinar, offered by The Collaborative for Exceptional Education, to learn how to provide students access to content that they are viewing online through online tools, instructional planning, and strategic use of co-teachers and paraprofessionals.

Instructional Approaches that Support Executive Functioning: Building Awareness of Student Needs and Developing Skills
