    Special education is a service not a place. But with the shift to eLearning, supporting students with IEPs has never been more difficult.

    Districts are facing challenges:
    1. Helping students with IEPs access the curriculum through eLearning platforms
    2. Supporting teachers as they accommodate a wide range of student needs
    3. Aligning with parents as they support their child(ren) at home

    As districts scramble to address these issues, they are putting accommodations in place to address many of these issues and help students work more independently.

    Join Ruth Ziolkowski as she shares how reading, writing, and learning accommodations can help administrators, practitioners, and parents as they support eLearning for students with IEPs in this FREE webinar hosted by IDEA.

    Attendees will receive these eLearning accommodation resources:

    Parent pack
    Teacher resources
    Tools skill alignment chart for administrators

    Illinois educators will earn one (1) PDH at the conclusion of the webinar.
