As defined by federal disability law IDEA, Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) is adapting the content, methodology, or delivery of instruction to address the unique needs of the child that result from the child’s disability and to ensure access of the child to the general curriculum, so that the child can meet the educational standards within the jurisdiction of the public agency that apply to all children.
In other words, Specially Designed Instruction is what makes special education special. If you’re a teacher working with students with IEPs or a leader looking for ways to better understand instruction for students with IEPs, then this session is for you! Join special education expert Anne Beninghof to gain practical ideas for creating and implementing SDI. Participants will explore practical tools and strategies for implementing SDI, exemplar lesson plans and videos, and walk away with concrete steps for developing SDI for their own students with disabilities.
