TEACHING Exceptional Children Volume 46, Number 5, ISSN 0040-0599
With the growth in blended and fully online K-12 instruction, all students, including those with disabilities, are finding online learning a viable option to address learner variability. Personalized learning or the individualized education program appears to align well with the many features of blended and fully online instruction. The purpose of this article is to assist teachers and other practitioners in understanding the availability of blended and fully online K-12 content for the struggling learner and those with disabilities. The hope is that through an understanding of how best to determine the accessibility of online content, teachers can better identify the right type of instructional program for their students, including the consideration of blended and fully online learning curriculum.
