This webinar takes families and educators through seven points in the IEP development process at which AEM might reasonably be considered and documented. Participants will be provided with IEP requirements at each point and questions related to consideration of accessible materials. Discussion will include a model of how accessible materials and technologies could be documented in an IEP to support effective use. Additional resources will be shared.
