INFORMATION
Training Overview

How do you help students with intellectual disabilities? Learn how to identify and help students.

As the new school year gets underway, it’s an ideal time to consider how students with intellectual disabilities can quickly fall behind when the school year has barely started. Pandemic-induced learning loss has hurt all students, leaving those with intellectual disabilities even farther behind. They may feel frustrated that they cannot master a subject despite their best efforts, causing them to feel helpless, act out, or withdraw.

Optimal strategies to foster focus in the classroom will enable you to help all students learn. Targeted prevention and intervention techniques will diffuse challenging behaviors in your students who have intellectual disabilities before it’s too late.
