Special Learning, Inc., a comprehensive Autism solutions company, today announced the release of its Educator Teaching Series eBook on “Curricular Modifications for Children With Developmental Disabilities in the Inclusive Classroom.” The sixth offering in a series of Educator Teaching learning resources, this eBook guides teachers in the inclusion of students with special education needs in the classroom, and provides helpful information on how to modify the curriculum to make it developmentally appropriate without affecting the regular program of typically developing children who belong to the same class. Teachers will learn techniques on how to design curriculum to optimize the competencies of students with developmental disabilities.
A strong and flexible curriculum is the foundation for successfully managing a wide span of learning abilities in a classroom. With the help of examples and charts, this eBook will show you how to accommodate the needs of each and every learner in an inclusive classroom. To enable children to cope and excel at learning tasks, teachers will learn how to:
- Modify individualized education plans for the inclusive classroom, with examples by subject
- Include input from professional evaluations, teacher assessments and parental feedback
- Incorporate special accommodations and interventions (e.g., special classes, equipment, assistants)
- Use authentic skills analysis and rubrics to monitor skills and competency development
- Regularly monitor modifications for their appropriateness, feasibility and flexibility
This Educator Teaching Series eBook is a learning resource and reading companion aimed not only at teachers but also parents and other individuals in the life of the child with Autism and other special needs. It provides a practical guide to Inclusion, the current trend in schools that have chosen to embrace diversity in their classrooms.
