Webinar: Supporting Students with Disabilities through Personalized Learning

Many educators and leaders are aware of the multiple benefits of personalized learning, including increased student agency, improved student learning, and more intentional planning for college and careers. Personalized learning has inherent benefits for students with disabilities, but there are also inherent challenges. For example, conversations about students with disabilities and personalized learning remain generic and often students’ unique needs and learning styles are not adequately considered at the outset of implementation.

To successfully implement personalized learning specifically for students with disabilities, educators and leaders need a clear understanding of what these approaches look like in practice, what policy and practice changes they require, and what supports need to be in place. On this webinar, you will hear about emerging efforts to use personalized learning approaches to better serve students with disabilities, tools that are designed to help policymakers and practitioners, and strategies to help build the capacity of schools to use this approach.
