PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES-FDLRS/East
Bringing Accommodations to Life in the Classroom is an 8.5-hour credit course. Participants will learn about specific accommodations for students with disabilities based on learning, behavioral, social, emotional, and independent functioning needs. They will also learn how to select, use and evaluate the effectiveness of accommodations to ensure the accommodation matches student needs and can be effectively integrated into instruction. This course will be offered synchronously, through a virtual format and meet the requirement for SWD in-service credit. This opportunity is appropriate for both general education and ESE teachers as an initial Accommodations training or as a supplement to previous training. A follow-up implementation activity, including uploading data to the FDLRS Implementation Database, is required in order to earn course credit. (ProGOE Section# 408840-April 1, 2021 8:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.-Virtual)
