Program Planning

We're delighted to announce that a new section on Program Planning has been added to the Active Learning Space website by Kate Hurst.  This section of the website is meant to help family members and educators learn more about how to specify the use of an Active Learning approach and equipment in the IEP.

This new section includes the following pages:

Find out what considerations are important when developing the IEP, so that goals and benchmarks or objectives align with the general or standard academic curriculum, which is also required by law.

Learn about how students with visual impairments and DeafBlindness can benefit from instruction in the Expanded Core Curriculum. Active Learning is an approach that can be used to provide instruction in this curriculum for students who are sensorimotor or early pre-operational level learners.
