Feedback form is now closed.
Traditionally, students with disabilities have been relegated to more rote learning experiences. This is in large part due to adult biases on what students with disabilities can learn and do. Nevertheless, our students with disabilities will enter the same economy and society as their peers and that economy and society demands them to demonstrate deeper learning. Research shows that—with the right accommodations—this group can engage in the same learning as their peers without disabilities. Furthermore, the great majority of students with disabilities spend the great majority of their time in general education classrooms. Leaving students with disabilities out of the deeper learning conversation is thus as practically infeasible as it is morally unjust. Ace Parsi, Director of Innovation at the National Center for Learning Disabilities, will present the organization's learning around what practices and policies can ensure students with disabilities engage in deeper learning.
