If a student is classified with a disorder, do we really know what it means? Do we know what it looks like? Do we really know how we need to differentiate our instruction for each child? This class will take an in depth look at the 13 classifications under IDEA for special education. It will enable teachers of both general education and special education to more confidently understand each classification and will allow teachers to strengthen their classroom management strategies for students that may be emotionally disabled, on the spectrum, or have physical impairments. The goal is to more fully understand each classification on a more informational level and how they may present themselves in a classroom. This class will enable educators and parents of all levels to feel more confident in implementing behavior strategies for students that have disabilities. NYS and Common Core Learning Standards are addressed. This course is appropriate for all educators including Guidance Counselors, Psychologists, ELA, Math, Social Studies, Foreign Language, Science, The Arts, Physical and Special Education, N-12.
