Effective Accommodations for Struggling Students


February 24, 2021

1:00pm - 2:30pm MST | 2:00pm - 3:30pm CST


During this free, 90-minute training, participants will learn about various learning styles and effective ways to accommodate and support them. The ability to distinguish between visual learners, auditory learners, and other types of learning is important when identifying various learning needs, such as memory, executive functioning, and expression. Accommodations shared can be used across all tiered levels of support and in a variety of learning environments. This training is geared toward, but not limited to, teachers and support providers.

 

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will learn the differences between accommodations, interventions, and modifications
  • Participants will be able to identify various learning styles
  • Participants will gain skills in matching effective accommodations with differing learning styles
