Our Favorite eLearning Engagement Strategies for Students with Autism and Other Complex Needs

Presented by: Laura Cuthbertson / Torrie Turner

About the Webinar

Every teacher shares the same challenge with eLearning. It’s tough! And the most challenging thing is engagement. Now for those of us who teach students with autism and other complex needs, we need some extra powerful strategies and resources to ensure our students are engaged and learning.

In this webinar recording, you’ll see Laura Cuthbertson, a former special education teacher who brought Readtopia® to her classroom, and Torrie Turner, Educational Support Specialist, share favorite strategies and resources that you can bring to your remote “classroom.”

You’ll come away with new engagement strategies to:

  • Implement components of Readtopia (videos, graphic novels, informational texts, ELA, math activities, science lessons, life skills, and more!)
  • Differentiate with materials at up to 7 levels from non-readers to beginning readers
  • Deliver content through your Learning Management System (Schoology, Canvas, Google Classroom, etc.)
  • Add interactivity through apps like Pear Deck and Loom
  • Accommodate worksheets through PDF annotation tools
  • Tips for teachers and parents to help students “lean in” to learning
