Creating Accessible Classrooms
Tips and resources to make remote learning accessible to everyone
Transitioning to online learning is hard enough for students and educators, let alone students with learning disabilities. Although creating different accommodations can be challenging during remote learning, it's a challenge that can be met. The LDA has created resources to help you and your students thrive, including resources to help make online classes accessible for all learners.
During this time, many parents of students with learning disabilities are looking for guidance from teachers. The LDA issued a parent survey about which resources they needed most, and based off of that survey they created a fact sheet with tips for educators.
