This training will provide Project MAX internal and external coaches with skills and knowledge needed to support their teams as they work to design and deliver grade level, standards-aligned instruction for students with complex instructional needs. In addition, participants will hear presenter, Dan Herlihy, discuss Technology Tools to Support Students with Complex Instructional Needs. In this session, participants will learn ways to modify and adapt curriculum to engage students with significant cognitive disabilities, using an array of software, apps, extensions and hardware tools. Turn print materials into talking books, and add additional layers of supports for understanding with video, video-in-video, or captioning. Learn how to download online eBooks, add additional audio, text and visual supports, then save for any device. Utilize tools to create on-the-fly audio access to print materials, capture and modify text to reduce text complexity, and save as a revised differentiated version, adding supports for writing such as picture supported word banks. Quick and easy-to-use resources for differentiation will allow you to adapt any curricular material, providing all your students with access to your standards based content.
