DoDEA knows that all students can learn when instruction is geared to the students’ strengths and when the students are given sufficient opportunity to learn. Special educators work collaboratively with general educators and share the responsibility for ensuring that students with identified disabilities will meet with success.
DoDEA will pilot the ReThink Autism Program in all schools. This web-based program assists in generating individualized plans, assessing each student’s current level of performance, and developing individualized program goals. It also provides access to evidence-based teaching interventions so a student can follow a customized curriculum path based on ongoing assessment.
This year, we will pilot 150 electronic tablets in select special education classrooms for student with disabilities. The tablets will be used to increase access to the general education classroom for students with limited language skills, improve life skills, and pre-academic skills.
