One School’s Process of Providing Access to the General Education Curriculum

This presentation will detail a case study on how multiple educational personnel in one middle school provide students with significant disabilities access to the general education curriculum. Barriers faced and how education personnel have worked to overcome these barriers will be described. This presentation aligns with the conference theme by examining equity, opportunity, and inclusion in one exemplary middle school.

After this session, participants will be able to: a) describe how twelve educational personnel in various positions individually and collaboratively provided students with significant disabilities access to the general education curriculum. b) identify the four main barriers that educational personnel faced in providing access to the general education curriculum c) explain various ways in which educational personnel have worked to overcome these barriers.
