Instruction

Providing effective instruction for students with disabilities is a flexible and reflective process.  Educators must utilize a blend of content knowledge, pedagogical knowledge, and student data to develop, provide and reflect on instructional practices that are designed to improve outcomes for students with disabilities.  Instructional planning must be designed around short and long term learning goals and take into consideration general education curriculum, grade level content standards as well as evidence based practices and individual student IEP goals.  Another important consideration when planning instruction is incorporating students’ backgrounds, culture, and language to make instruction more relatable and connected to the real world.

The BASICS Tool features two great components to support LEA and SELPAs. The first component is the BASIC Infrastructure Assessment Tool. The BASICS infrastructure Assessment tool identifies six basic, or foundational, components for the kind of infrastructure needed in order to have a well-functioning special education program. It also provides a tool for examining the degree to which these components are in place in your system. The results of that examination can help you decide where best to start system improvement efforts. The second component of the BASICS tool is the IEP Data Visualization Tool, this tool works with your SEDS (Special Education Data System) generated reports to create data visualizations for IEP overdue ELIGIBILITY EVALUATIONS or overdue NEXT EVALUATION PLAN REVIEWS.
