Personalizing Learning for Students with Disabilities

This week, our friends at the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) released a new report, Personalized Learning: Meeting the Needs of Students with Disabilities. This report represents the culmination of a year-long project engaging experts, educators and advocates to determine the challenges and opportunities posed by a personalized learning experience for students with special needs.

As a participating expert on this important project, I believe this report brings a sorely needed perspective and voice for our special needs students. NCLD’s recommendations, if heeded, can facilitate a personalized learning system for all students.

Every student has unique talents and abilities, and every student deserves an education that adapts to their needs. ExcelinEd believes that Competency-Based Education is a critical component of personalizing learning to ensure all children achieve their greatest potential.
