Do you have students with disabilities for whom you need to adapt or modify all or part of your instruction in order to meet their needs? Join Dr. Angelica Underwood as she discusses using Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) for students with special needs. In addition to explaining the meaning of SDI, Angelica will cover how it can be aligned to state standards and IEPs in order to address the unique needs of children with learning disabilities and to ensure their access to general education curriculum.

Great Ideas! I do agree it is important to know the difference between accommodations and modifications.
This presentation was very helpful; I learned that we need to teach all children the same standards that are required in all of the grade levels. We can help them fill the learning gaps with graphic organizers, place value charts, word banks and multiplication charts to be successful. I strongly believe that we need to follow each IEP plan to help with our modifications and accommodations so our teaching can help children with disabilities become successful. Teach the standard but do not water down the activities or lessons.
