90 minutes

Need a social skill slam book? How about a stackable food web, a story kit, a purposeful fidget or an alternative pencil? If you teach in an inclusive classroom, the answer is – without a doubt – yes! This webinar will focus on practical supports that can be used for students with disabilities in inclusive classrooms. In this session, we will highlight common struggles and needs of learners with Down syndrome (e.g., communication challenges, memory issues, movement differences) and outline practical solutions for each area of need. These ideas will help educators adapt and teach grade-level standards and provide inspiration for reaching all learners in the diverse classroom.
