Are gen ed teachers aware they might not be reaching all their students? Anyone working with students with disabilities who fails to provide accessible instruction and materials is inadvertently building barriers to learning.
In recognition of National Disability Awareness Month, Atomic Learning developed the Supporting Accessible Instruction Spotlight with these goals for educators:
In addition to the new collection of training, Atomic Learning is encouraging all educators to take a pledge to create accessible instruction. Learn more here: http://www.atomiclearning.com/k12/allstudents.
- Understand the requirements to provide accessible materials and assistive technology under IDEA
- Understand how to meet those requirements as it relates to classroom materials
- Practice creating documents and forms that are accessible to students using assistive technology
- Build awareness of the barriers assistive technology can help students overcome
Do your part to create accessible instruction for all students; take the pledge today.
