Ensuring Students with Disabilities Can Access Concurrent Instruction

Jan 29, 2021 | Covid-19

Last year, most people had never heard of concurrent instruction, an instructional model in which teachers instruct students both face-to-face and via a web-based videoconferencing platform (such as Zoom) at the same time.

Now, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, concurrent instruction is an increasingly common practice. It raises new challenges, including the need to ensure students with disabilities can access instruction whether they are learning from home or in the classroom.

The Maryland State Department of Education released a Technical Assistance Bulletin to help schools meet the needs of students with disabilities in a concurrent model.
