The COVID-19 pandemic has had an unprecedented impact on the education system in the United States. As schools move increasingly online, new challenges are arising for special education teachers, educators, students, and families.
We all know it is not easy for students to remain focused and engaged in virtual class and it can be an even grander undertaking for students who may have unique needs or challenges such as cognitive impairments, on the autism spectrum, or a learning disability.
Academic skills are not the only skills that these students develop in school, they also learn how to be independent which can be extremely difficult to teach virtually.
Under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), school districts are federally required to provide students with disabilities an education that ensures the child meets the standards of the Individualized Education Program (IEP). Meeting IEP requirements virtually can be extremely difficult for educators because there can be a disconnect when students are not in-person to learn.
It can be tremendously frustrating for parents to watch their child struggle to learn because of inadequate virtual education strategies, and there have even been instances where parents or students left virtual sessions due to their ineffectiveness. That’s why our Healthy Relationships Curriculum has been working so well for thousands of educators and students across the country.
We created this curriculum so it can be adapted to any learning environment – whether your students are learning in the classroom or will be learning virtual from the comfort of their home this fall – our detailed lesson plans and instructions will work regardless of the modality. Whether your students have varying needs, are on the autism spectrum, or have a learning disability, they will learn critical life and social skills.
With over 85 informative videos for students to watch, 39 ready-to-use lessons, outcome measurement tools, and an online portal that connects teachers with students and their families, our curriculum is the tool you need to effectively teach this fall.
