The American Youth Policy Forum; College & Career Readiness & Success Center; and the National Center for Learning Disabilities will host a joint webinar on the emerging efforts to use personalized learning approaches to better serve students with disabilities, tools that are designed to help policymakers and practitioners, and strategies to help build the capacity of schools to use this approach. 

Description

Personalized learning has inherent benefits for students with disabilities, but there are also inherent challenges. To successfully implement personalized learning for students with disabilities, educators and leaders need a clear understanding of what these approaches look like in practice, what policy and practice changes they require, and what supports need to be in place.
