Some CT students with disabilities may fall behind in remote learning
Advocates for students with disabilities are thinking ahead on what to do when school is back in session.
Schools have been learning remotely for nearly a month. But, not all children are receiving the same access to education.
While schools are closed, parents and children don’t have access to the same resources that they usually have.
Forte is telling parents to keep track of how well your child is adapting to learning remotely and to be in constant contact with their teachers and therapists.
He says when school opens back up, your child may be entitled to remediation services or compensatory education hours.
There are a number of resources available for parents and students with disabilities who are dealing with online education.
