Making Everyday Curriculum Materials Accessible for All Learners
Wednesday, July 11 – Wednesday, March 27, 2019
Educators in 1st, 2nd or 3rd year of teaching (we welcome all interested participants).
The National AEM Center invites you to participate in a free professional development opportunity to improve the accessibility of the materials your students use for learning. Many students with disabilities experience barriers to using curriculum materials due to physical, sensory, or learning disabilities. The outcome of the offered professional development is that you will improve your students’ access to the same curriculum materials as their classmates. And, we’re certain that you’ll discover that accessibility improves the quality of your curriculum for all learners. For this activity, we’re targeting educators in their first, second, or third year of teaching; however, we welcome all interested participants. Small groups from the same school or district are encouraged.
Making Everyday Curriculum Materials Accessible for All Learners is a pre-approved course for the IAAP Certified Professional in Accessibility Core Competencies (CPACC) credential. If you currently hold IAAP Certification, you can submit the completion of the module series as a pre-approved CAEC program. Please inform us if you plan to use the online series for CAECs. More information is available at the website of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals.
