Raising the Bar: Significant Advances and Future Needs for Promoting Learning for Students with Severe Disabilities
Spooner, Fred; Browder, Diane M.
Remedial and Special Education, v36 n1 p28-32 Jan-Feb 2015
This essay describes major advances in educating students with severe disabilities. The authors propose that applied behavior analysis, the focus on functional life skills, and the promotion of academic content have been the major advances in the "how" and "what" of learning for this population. An increased focus on literacy, improved instruction for teaching state standards, and increased emphasis on students with the most significant disabilities are provided as goals for the future.
