Aligning IEPs to the Common Core State Standards

New Edition!

Now Courtade and Browder have an updated version of Aligning IEPs in which they expand and elaborate on their original ideas while creating a new template that shows teachers how to align IEPs to the core curriculum standards.

This updated version features entirely new areas of discussion and examination. And it has a new chapter on effective instruction for teaching academic objectives to students with an intellectual disability.

Current federal policy requires that alternate achievement standards be linked to grade level content that promotes access to the general curriculum. This succinctly presented book provides a clear framework for aligning academic content for students with an intellectual disability. Focuses on language arts and math, plus self-determination and assistive technology. Includes sample objectives and a case study.

The new edition includes:

  • Ideas for aligning IEP goals and objectives to new Common Core State Standards (CCSS)

  • Updated examples of ELA and math objectives based on CCSS

  • Updated case study examples of alignment for students with moderate and severe disabilities

  • Updated hardware and software examples used to teach academic objectives

  • A new chapter on effective instruction for teaching academic objectives to students with moderate and severe disabilities

The authors, Drs. Ginevra Courtade and Diane Browder, published Aligning IEPs to Academic Standards in 2005. It was an immediate success and one of Attainment’s all-time best sellers. In it they touched a special education sweet spot and readers responded with overwhelming enthusiasm. It explored the linkage between state and federal standards and fundamental school curricula and showed how each area could line up to standards in a way that advanced the student’s IEP without sacrificing practicality.

Browder is the chief investigator behind Attainment’s
Early Literacy Skills Builder (ELSB), a remedial reading program for young students with an intellectual disability. Courtade was a primary investigator on ELSB as well. It’s based on an extensive multi-year grant and won the CASE endorsement—just one product is honored with it each year. It also became a huge hit and is now considered the preeminent remedial reading program for students with an intellectual disability.
