Specially Designed Instruction & Its Application for Students with Disabilities
Tuesday, October 16, 2018

EDI, SDI, UDL, DI? This full day workshop for both general education teachers and special education teachers will define Specially Designed Instruction, Explicit Instruction, Differentiated Instruction, and Scaffolding. We will discuss NY State laws and regulations, as well as best practice for providing specially designed instruction at every level of the continuum of services for students with disabilities. In the afternoon, there will be discussion around explicit direct instruction. Participants will be given a variety of tools to help them plan and prepare for specially designed instruction for students with disabilities.

This training topic aligns with the following guiding principles from the NYSED Blueprint for Improved Results for Students with Disabilities: 
  • Teachers design, provide, and assess the effectiveness of specially designed instruction to provide students with disabilities with access to participate and progress in the general education curriculum.evelop a common understanding around the requirements of the NYS Seal of Biliteracy (SSB)
  • Teachers provide research-based instructional teaching and learning strategies and supports for students with disabilities.
  • Schools provide multi-tiered systems of behavioral and academic support.
  • Schools provide high quality inclusive programs and activities.
