The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is hosting a Webinar Highlighting Resources For Teachers and Parents to Enhance the Continuity of Learning During COVID-19 for Children with Disabilities on June 4th, 2020. Register for the event here.
About the Webinar
OSEP is hosting the first in a series of webinars focused on ready-to-use resources, tools, and practices from OSEP-funded grantees to support the educational, developmental, behavioral, and social/emotional needs of infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities through remote and distance learning. With the extended school closures occurring across the country, many States, districts, and schools are now delivering instruction remotely while parents, families, and students are having to learn in entirely new ways and facing challenges when it comes to learning during these unprecedented times. It is important to provide continuity of learning and growth for all children and youth, particularly those with disabilities. This webinar offers an opportunity to highlight free resources, targeted at various stakeholders, aimed at exploring potential strategies and innovative approaches to address the critical needs of students with disabilities during the COVID-19 era.
This webinar will take place on June 4th, 2020 from 2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Improving how we support schools, teachers, families, and students with disabilities is critical in ensuring that all students with disabilities, who have been disproportionality impacted by the shift to remote and distance learning, have access to a high-quality education and services that fit their individualized needs.
Additional information will be posted on OSEP's COVID-19 Resource Page.
