About this workshop

How to teach children with disabilities is the biggest “knot” and challenge of education today (Glat, 2013). Research consistently shows that the more time children of all ages are actively engaged in the curriculum, the more they learn. Active learning requires the child to engage and sustain attention, participate actively, maintain high levels of motivation, and complete assigned tasks. Yet many children with disabilities experience difficulties in all of these areas.

Simply encouraging the child to actively participate in a task is seldom enough. Educators need to be able to adapt the curriculum effectively by matching their teaching strategies with the child’s needs. Promoting Active Learner Engagement in Children and Adolescents with Disabilities is an interactive workshop that explores a range of accommodations and modifications that can be made to the curriculum to assist children with disabilities in maintaining focus and attention, actively participating in learning activities, and being motivated to carry a task through to completion.

In this practical and interactive workshop, you’ll learn:

  • The definition and characteristics of active learner engagement
  • The 6 components of active learner engagement
  • Accommodations and modifications that can be made in the classroom to address components of active learner engagement

Come along to this practical and interactive workshop that provides an expert blend of information, skills and strategies that will educate, empower and enable you to be the CHANGE in the lives of the people you support.
