Adapting Curriculum can be daunting even for the seasoned educator. This seminar will help you better understand the nine different types of adaptations, when to use them and how to successfully implement changes to your current curriculum. Proven samples will be shared with attendees in the educator led session covering adaptations that work for K-8th grade in various subjects. Attendees will learn what accommodations/modifications are and when to use them, how to access general education curriculum through modifications that engage the learner, and ways to evaluate and adapt assignments to achieve the intended learning outcomes. Additionally, there will also be a brief review of The Reading and Language Intervention for Children with Down Syndrome (RLI). This is a teaching program which supplements and supports regular teaching to improve reading and language outcomes for children with Down syndrome

This Conference is free to our members w/ Ds and their immediate family members, $25 for others and $40 for those wanting CEU credits. Registration deadline is Oct. 1st.
