AuSM Skillshop: Special Education During COVID-19

$10 – $25

COVID-19 poses unique challenges for all sectors of society, including special education programs. If a school district is offering general education services to its residents, then it also must offer special education services to students who qualify for them. Simply suspending special education services, as some school districts have tried, violates the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. This AuSM Skillshop will focus on advocating for special education services during COVID-19, and on developing creative strategies for providing special education service minutes.
