Blog and Resources to Support Students with Disabilities and their Families
The call for suggested resources and tools went out about three weeks ago. Then, the website, Distance Learning for Special Education, emerged. Megan, Lisa, and their colleague and friend, Jenny Kurth, launched a site that many have benefited from. What I love about this site is that it immediately recognizes that educators, students with disabilities, and students’ families need support. We’re all in this together. This is the discussion that kicked off my interview with Megan Gross and Lisa Yamasaki for this episode of UDL in 15 Minutes.
Megan and Lisa are incredibly generous and have shared additional tools and resources they have produced for parents and colleagues. I’ve listed them below.
Megan put together a webinar for parents of children with disabilities on how they can increase interest and attention at home through choice boards. https://youtu.be/LONV2uy2Hj8
She also included the presentation slides and templates for the choice boards.
- Lisa’s produced resources for her colleagues to help them translate UDL into distance learning:
- Lisa also created an interactive representation of the UDL Guidelines so teachers could learn about monitor their own use of the guidelines: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1IeVpU-0udiaQGbdotBhkdilwq0fb10vGTDiTHx7pKQ8/edit?usp=sharing
In the spirit of less is more, I’m going to end this blog here. There are hoards of resources floating around out there. Of course, I’m only interested in the ones that will help all learners grow to become expert learners.
