When we asked people who work in special education about their biggest challenges, these were some of their most common responses:

  • covering the diverse range of student needs
  • engaging students in learning
  • finding time to learn and incorporate new resources

Sound familiar? Cue Kelly Fonner—an experienced educational and assistive technology consultant with solutions.

This webinar with Kelly is an opportunity to take a stroll through Readtopia—a comprehensive set of teaching resources designed for upper elementary, middle, and high school students with complex needs.

In this webinar, Kelly will show you how to:

  • Differentiate across your entire range of student needs with leveled materials
  • Use Readtopia to guide 40% of your daily instructional time (in-person and remote)
  • Improve engagement and behavior with video, graphic novels, informational texts, hands-on activities, and more
  • Connect literacy with content area learning (ELA / Reading, Math, Social Studies, Science, Functional Life Skills)
  • Gain back time spent adapting materials and reconnect with the joy of teaching (our most important job)!
