Journey to Inclusion
Nebraska finished off #InclusiveSchoolsWeek strong with a highlight video of the work happening in one of the pilot schools. Watch our video and stay tuned as our Journey has just begun!!
As part of Nebraska’s “Journey to Inclusion,” we are excited to work with our partners at Hanover Research to develop meaningful and easy-to-use resources to inform stakeholders about how to support inclusive efforts. This published infographic “Best Practices in Special Education NDE” highlights instructional strategies that not only support students with special needs but all students in the classroom. These high-impact instructional strategies are also aligned with selections found in the Targeted Improvement Plan (TIP) that schools submit to portray continuous improvement efforts within Special Education programs.
In December 2023, this infographic was reviewed by Nebraska’s Special Education Advisory Council (SEAC) and we are excited to share it widely. Stayed tuned for the next publication, “Benchmarking Co-Teaching Policies & Practices.”
The Nebraska Department of Education, Office of Special Education, in partnership with SPED Strategies is excited to continue Nebraska’s Journey to Inclusion. SPED Strategies has the following instructional resources available for our Inclusion learning.
All students, including students with disabilities, deserve access to a high-quality education that prepares them for future success. Students are best served when they have access to effective instruction on a high-quality, grade-level curriculum that is tailored to their learning needs. These free resources are designed to help school systems design an instructional strategy that meets the needs of students with disabilities.
