Access to the Curriculum Webinar Series - Part 4: Implementation

Tuesday, November 1, 2011 - 3:00 - 4:00 pm

What are some of the biggest barriers to Curriculum and environmental
access for students with Low Incidence Disabilities? How can
practitioners and families plan ahead for appropriate interactions?
This presentation will provide participants with information about
great program features impacting learning and life for students with
Low Incidence or Intensive Disabilities. This series is offered in an
effort to develop statewide capacity and understanding. In targeting
this content we hope to impact the education of students with
exceptionalities. We know this is a complex puzzle requiring many
pieces for success. Assistive Technology and other instructional
supports are very important to each student's path to an enviable
life. Student access to these tools and supports could mean the
difference between a life of independence and a life determined by
others. This webinar will provide participants with an overview of
programming that will enable students with Low Incidence disabilities
to show what they know and pursue their dreams. Content will relate to
accessing the curriculum and functional/life skills. Find and fill the
missing piece for your students! Make a personal commitment to build
our own practices related to Low Incidence Disabilities in the third
Webinar in this engaging series. Please register on http://www.ocali.org
