Description

Accessible educational materials (AEM) must be intentionally factored into transition planning services to prepare students who need them for meeting higher education and workforce training goals. Join this session as we unpack the challenges faced by students as they exit high school and enter postsecondary settings and the role of AEM in providing equal access to education and employment. Strategies for scaffolding students' independent use of AEM as they progress from Kindergarten through high school completion will be shared.

Accessible Educational Materials (AEM)

Print- and technology-based educational materials designed to be usable across the widest range of individual variability.
