In this edWebinar, learn how to meet both curriculum needs and IEP goals and objectives for students with autism. This edWebinar covers accommodations that support personalized learning and maximizing large group, small group, 1:1, and independent work so all students have access to learning growth. Learn how to automatically collect data to advance student learning quickly and easily while sharing progress across the entire IEP team. We use Vizzle, an interactive visual learning program, to demonstrate best practices, with specific examples from Texas and Florida. Vizzle will be accessible for district pilots, including for professional development.
This recorded edWebinar will be of interest to teachers and school and district leaders of all grade levels.
