Accommodating students with learning disabilities
But as the number of students in special education programs has increased, the supply of special education instructors has not kept pace.
Based on the Department of Education’s Teacher Shortage Area Nationwide Listing, 47 states in the 2014-15 school year were in need of special education instructors.
The purpose of this chapter is to provide further information about inclusion for high-incidence disabilities, to describe inclusion models, and to provide suggestions for effective practices for increasing learning for all students when students with high-incidence disabilities are included in the general education classroom.
SSD arranges academic accommodation for classes, exams, internships and other course or program activities.One tool to help students with disabilities even in the face of a special education teacher shortage is assistive technology.Today, assistive technology can help students with certain disabilities learn more effectively.I think all of the children in my room benefit from it.We (both teachers) really problem solve together and one of us always comes up with a good idea of how to get through to the students.”.
