AT Basics for Teachers of Students with Mild Moderate Needs
Registration is Now Closed
You are already working nights and weekends, you don’t need complicated tools and expectations to add to your load. You are already a master at finding curriculum accommodations to support access for your students but those that are significantly behind in reading and continue to struggle with writing need something else, you are just not sure what that is and how much it will cost. Can I even recommend things that need to be purchased?
This 6 week course is designed for you, teachers who want to feel confident determining basic AT accommodations for their students with mild-moderate needs. It is also the second course in the series of three for those working toward the AT Certificate.
You will practice using basic tools and strategies for determining AT needs in the areas of reading, writing, and math. I’ll show you how to write findings into the IEP, much like any other curriculum access accommodations. You will demonstrate what you know in a short and sweet curriculum access worksheet that I’ll review & support your process. I’ll teach you to use two, time saving, formative tools with students in order to compare curriculum access with and without AT tools.
If you attend, do the activities and participate in this course; you will be able to:
- Determine the gap between student performance with and without AT accommodations.
- Describe multiple means for accessing text and performing written products with the use of AT.
- Demonstrate the use of 2 or more formative tools to determine AT benefit.
- Site the difference between audio or human read text and digital text and where to obtain these tools/text.
- Demonstrate the skills necessary to determine AT for students on your caseload by turning in one sample “AT consideration worksheet” with appropriate use of formative tool(s) and recommended accommodations for a student.
