From SaS to FAB: Introducing the Framework for Access and Belonging to Families


Session Dates

Thursday January 26, 2023 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM - Webinar

Spend an hour learning about The Framework for Access and Belonging (FAB). The FAB process is used to address a student’s access to instruction and/or social interactions. Sound familiar? It is a “renovation” of the Supplementary Aids and Services Consideration Toolkit (SaS Toolkit) with an emphasis on collaboration, improved technology, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and follow up planning and evaluation.

During this session, families will learn about each phase of the FAB process, and the important collaborative role they play from completing the survey, brainstorming, and planning. Information about how families can access the FAB tools will also be highlighted. The session will be recorded and made available on the PaTTAN website.


Participants will be able to
1. Identify the phases of the FAB process.
2. Discuss the tools used during the FAB process.
3. Describe the role of families in the FAB process.
