Yesterday, the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) and Understood released a new resource to address the challenges distance learning poses for children with learning and attention issues. The toolkit is meant to help educators support students in their classrooms that learn differently by offering three key teacher mindsets, eight key teaching practices, and additional resources that are effective for all students but especially those with learning and attention issues. The methods offered in the toolkit are also meant to support social-emotional learning and racial equity.

In addition to links to additional resources, the toolkit offers guidance on conducting useful assessments that help gauge student progress during distance learning.

Access the toolkit!
