VIDEO: How Can A Parent Approach Accessibility In Distance Learning Without An Inclusion Facilitator?
One of the many complicated aspects of distance learning is ensuring that accommodations and modifications for our children continue to be applied even in this new learning environment. While speaking on our recent Distance Learning Panel, Dr. Mary Falvey, professor emerita of special education, discussed how inclusion within virtual classrooms should work. Dr. Falvey is currently an inclusion facilitator for a student with disabilities in a distance learning setting, and stressed to parents that collaboration and co-planning with teachers is key.
