Students with high-incidence disabilities often spend most or all of their school days in general population classrooms, but they still have needs that may require special accommodations or teaching styles. But who are these students, and how can you reach them in the midst of your already-packed classroom time?

In this course, you will review the disabilities that are present with the highest frequency within the population of students who receive special education services. These include autism spectrum disorders, communication disorders, intellectual disabilities, specific learning disabilities, and emotional or behavior disorders. In addition to examining the common characteristics of students with these disabilities, you will develop differentiated instructional strategies and explore resources that will support the learning of all students in your classroom.

Using the tools and techniques from this course, you will be able to understand the challenges of students with disabilities in your classroom and help them achieve their highest academic potentials.
