Overview

Students with print disabilities are frequently at a disadvantage when curriculum materials are not provided in a format they can access and use. A student with dyslexia may require curriculum materials in an audio format, while a student with low vision may need materials in large print, and a student with a physical disability may need materials in a digital text format. Join Dr. Hillary Goldthwaite-Fowles as she discusses Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM), and explores how much has changed in the instructional landscape since they were first introduced in the IDEA 2004 regulations. She will review the current state of Accessible Instructional Materials and Accessible Educational Materials (AEM), the use of Assistive Technology (AT), and how this all fits within IEP decision-making processes.
