Educators must be intentional and knowledgeable in the art of designing curricula for individuals with special needs to target content objectives, literacy-based process skills, AND components of Executive Functioning. During this presentation, educators will review different frameworks for curriculum development including Universal Design for Learning, Backwards Design, and Project Based Learning. Further emphasis will be placed on tools for modifying curricula allowing educators to assess their current content for age and developmental appropriateness. Real-world examples from real classrooms will provide insight into strategies used for different learning profiles.
