Supports for Students With Significant Cognitive Disabilities
Arkansas Department of Education
This resource provides ideas on how to connect learning to the daily activities happening within the home for students with significant cognitive disabilities. It can serve as a helpful compliment to educator-provided remote instruction. The resource is well organized by grade span, provides choices for individualization, alternative options for students who do not read, and reflects appropriate and evidence-based teaching strategies. It also provides a sample daily schedule for families with and without access to technology. Note: some activities require additional support from a family member to transition between activities and keep the student on task depending on their level of need.
