ESE 631 Week 6 Final Paper Professional Presentation.doc

					Professional Presentation

In an article from the Council for Exceptional Children, Beckman (2001)
states “Improved student learning requires teachers, schools, and
districts to give up unproductive traditions and beliefs, replacing them
with validated practices and a full understanding of the intent of the
law. Successful student access to the general education curriculum is
most likely when there is general acceptance” of best practices in
special education and adherence to the Individuals with Disabilities
Education Act (IDEA).

Scenario:

You are a special education teacher and your principal would like the
general education teachers to be aware of special education laws and
strategies for supporting students with disabilities in their classrooms.
With this in mind, the principal has asked you to put together an in-
service presentation for the next faculty meeting (with mostly general
education teachers) that reviews important components of special
education, the law, and research-based strategies for instruction and
inclusion.

The presentation should address the following components:

a. Overview of IDEA, least restrictive environment (LRE), and free and
appropriate public education (FAPE)

b. The purpose and main components of an Individualized Education
Program (IEP)

c. Accommodations and modifications that could support students with
disabilities in the classroom

d. Compare/Contrast learning disabilities (LD) and
emotional/behavioral disabilities (EBD)

e. Compare/Contrast LD and intellectual disabilities (ID)

f. Compare/Contrast EBD and ID
g. Inclusion tips for each of the disability areas above (LD, EBD, ID)

The presentation should be 15 to 20 slides, and must include title and
references slides. The presentation should have a professional
appearance and provide visuals to engage the audience. Further, each
slide should include slide notes that elaborate on the content of the
presentation slide. APA format should be used for all in-text citations
and references. Include at least two resources in addition to your
course text.
