Do you ever wish that you had the extra time to adapt books or novels that are being used in the general education classroom so that a student with disabilities can fully participate and engage in the same academic content as their peers? Through a variety of free web-based sites dedicated to adapting books for students with disabilities, you can have adapted books at your fingertips! Using free websites developed by the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and Baltimore City Schools, workshop participants will get hands-on experience in finding appropriate books for their students.
Who Should Attend:
General and special education teachers, paraprofessionals, speech language pathologists, case managers, inclusion facilitators, physical and occupational therapists, and others are encouraged to attend.
Sponsored by the National Center on Inclusive Education (NCIE)
The NCIE at the UNH Institute on Disability (IOD) advances the view that disability is a natural part of the human experience and promotes the inclusion of all students within general education classrooms and school communities. With the NCIE, the IOD is bringing together all if its inclusive education efforts under one “roof” in order to better meet the needs of children with disabilities and their families, educators, and others concerned with inclusive school communities.
