Guidance for Providing a Safety Net for Students with Disabilities

EducatingAllLearners offers guidance to help special education teachers provide remote lessons. The site, an effort for educators by educators, was launched by more than 30 organizations, including the National Center for Learning Disabilities. The site is free and available to anyone, although it is aimed at special education teachers and general education teachers who have students with special needs in their classes. It includes brief, vetted lists of online teaching tools, such as videos and lesson plans from NASA and National Geographic; advice in multiple languages on how to support students with autism; tips on how to provide speech therapy online; and first-person accounts from teachers on how they have solved specific problems. It also offers guidance for conducting online meetings with parents to discuss a student’s Individualized Education Program and a list of tips for general education teachers, who may have overlooked steps to help special education students, such as using large fonts and high-contrast lighting during online classes and turning on closed captions when showing videos. The site will be updated regularly, and teachers can share what is working for them, in real time.
