Supports for Students With Significant Cognitive Disabilities

Reading Time: < 1 minute

This resource provides ideas on how to connect learning to the daily activities happening within the home for students with significant cognitive disabilities. It can serve as a helpful compliment to educator-provided remote instruction. The resource is well organized by grade span, provides choices for individualization, alternative options for students who do not read, and reflects appropriate and evidence-based teaching strategies. It also provides a sample daily schedule for families with and without access to technology. Note: some activities require additional support from a family member to transition between activities and keep the student on task depending on their level of need.
