Course Overview

With schools closed across the country, accommodating IEP goals of special needs students has been an even more pressing an ongoing issue.

 Most IEPs require some type of modification to help students with disabilities succeed in school. For educators, this means extra time and effort in lesson plan development and classroom management. This can be a struggle for teachers who are trying to teach material to a large number of students, all with different needs and capabilities, both in-classroom and at a distance. Compliance with IEPs is a particular concern, as schools are required by federal law to deliver services in alignment with each student’s IEP, and while children are at home, it is not possible to perfectly replicate the services that happen inside schools. Further, the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)—the legislation governing IEP services—doesn’t include guidance for prolonged school closures. Educators and families are both operating in uncharted territory.
Not to worry! In this unit, you will learn how to effectively leverage virtual meeting tools and other tech innovations to monitor and track student IEP goals and outcomes in any learning environment.
Course Objectives
By the end of this course, participants will:
