Resources for teaching from home
The shift to online learning is not only jarring for students, but for educators as well. Many educators have had to completely change their learning plans in a very short amount of time, and are making the best of the situation.
But going to such a widespread online platform has many challenges, so we've compiled some learning resources to help educators during these unprecedented times. A recent LDA survey checked in with parents of students with learning disabilities to see what resources they need most, and based off of those results LDA has created a list of tips for educators.
