Instructional Strategies for the Exceptional Learners, 2nd Edition   

This 2nd edition self-paced online course is created for those individuals who successfully completed the original ‘Instructional Strategies for the Exceptional Learner’ self-paced online course. The purpose of this 2nd edition course is to extend the knowledge, skills, and strategies of this original course by continuing to present evidence-based classroom strategies for modifying instruction and behavior management to meet the unique learning needs of students with disabilities.

Readings, module content, and online activities will describe specific teaching strategies to facilitate and support student progress. The first module consists of the History of Disability and the Law, aiming to give individuals the knowledge base to answer some of the why's of special education. The second module is based on broadening the individuals scope of understanding of accessibility and Universal Design for Learning along with accommodations and modifications. Modules 3 and 4 contain at least one material related to one of the 13 disabilities identified in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. These materials were selected for specific reasons - knowledge, perspective sharing, and information about supports and strategies to increase the success of your students.

Specific instructional strategies matched to annual goals in a student's Individual Education Plan will be addressed: including modifications to classroom routines and organization, accommodations, general/special education collaboration, and behavior interventions.
