Session Dates

Tuesday November 15, 2022 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM - Webinar


Each day, professionals are presented with a barrage of online information – emails, newsletters, advertisements about curriculum and resources, and more. It can be overwhelming to know which resources are key to delivering English Language Arts, mathematics, and science standards. Teachers of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities may experience greater challenges identifying resources and delivering accessible standards and content. In 2020, the PA Department of Education, Bureau of Special Education (BSE) adopted a new assessment system that includes key resources for teachers of students with significant cognitive disabilities. Join the BSE and Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) as the team provides a ‘walk through’ of content, instructional resources and assessment tools that can help with planning, teaching, and assessing.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify the purpose, core beliefs, and design of the Dynamic Learning Maps system.
  • Connect instruction to assessment and post-secondary school outcomes for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
  • Review instructional decision making through the use of DLM instruction and assessment resources.
