Overview

Have you been wanting to increase your knowledge of how to be inclusive of students with disabilities in your program? This one-hour session will introduce you to the newly available resource, Basic Disability Screening for Adult Educators, that was designed for adult education providers in Massachusetts. This booklet serves as the basis for organizing your thinking, programming, and assessment in ways that increase the inclusion and effective support of persons with disabilities in your program.

    Audience

    This professional development activity/course is designed for:

  • Advisors and instructors in the role of supporting all students, including those with disabilities
  • Program directors seeking information to guide program design and staffing that complies with the ADA
  • ADA coordinators
Description

Following a series of trainings on ADA compliance and inclusive practices last year, we received requests from the field asking for guidance on how to conduct screenings and design programming that is inclusive of all students, including those with disabilities. 

This new resource provides several basic screening tools that can help start the conversation between providers and students about disability-related assessments and accommodations. During the session, we will review the basic assessment process and the tools provided in the resource. 

A hands-on training on disability in adult education will be offered in the Spring, as a way to further develop your skills. But don’t wait until then! Attend this session and learn how you can start using this resource right away.

Note: You will receive a separate email from ruzica_banovic@worlded with instructions on how to access the Zoom session.
