Free Tool of the Week!


Happy Thursday! Here's your FREE Tool of the WeekShare on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Are you working on a real-world curriculum? Then you're going to love this week's FREE tool! It's a checklist for pedestrian skills to help you support students who are working on "getting around town" independently. The list will help you track progress and set priorities on skills that range from walking without difficulty, to understanding crossing rules, to walking in a group. For added context, we included suggested lesson topics and possible IEP goals to pair with the noted skills. The checklist and accompanying suggestions come from CEC's book, Getting Around Town: Teaching Community Mobility Skills to Students with Disabilities. This practical book of lesson plans is designed to help you determine what mobility skills to teach, when to teach them, and how, so you can give your students the gift of mobility! CEC's Tool of the Week is a free resource designed to support you in your special education practice. Subscribe and it'll be automatically delivered to your inbox! Get your Tool of the Week
