Equitable Access to the General Curriculum for Students with Extensive Support Needs: Current Research & Realities
In the current educational environment in which there is a more purposeful focus on diversity and equity, we must consider disability within the construct of diversity. This panel will discuss current research and realities for providing equitable access to the general curriculum across content areas for students with extensive support needs.
After this seminar, participants will be able to:
- Discuss innovations in providing access to the general curriculum in English language arts, social studies, math, and science for students with extensive support needs from recent research
- Describe how to enact the least dangerous assumption through the Universal Design for Learning framework, evidence-based practices, and standards-based instruction
- Describe specific strategies for viewing intersectional identities of students with extensive support needs as assets, rather than deficits
