Severe and Moderate Intellectual Disabilities Course

This 30-hour course is designed specifically for resource teachers and classroom teachers who work with students (k-12) with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities. It will prepare participants to plan and implement meaningful and effective programmes for these students. Participants will become familiar with the foundational principles and current research that guide this work. Participants will learn a range of assessment and instructional strategies and have opportunities to apply these to case studies and, if possible, to students in their own classes/caseloads.
