This course engages candidates in the knowledge, skills, and competencies necessary for curriculum development and adaptation as it relates to students with disabilities in the general education curriculum. The candidate will learn research-based strategies for planning, implementing and evaluating effective instructional programs for an inclusive curriculum that emphasizes the strengths but accommodates the unique needs of all children in the classroom. The focus will be on a cross-categorical approach to service delivery where students are grouped according to their instructional needs rather than their disability labels.
