McKissick, Bethany R.; Diegelmann, Karen M.; Parker, Sarah
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v36 n3 p155-159 Sep 2017
Providing high-quality special education services in rural settings has a variety of challenges such as geographic isolation and a lack of resources. One particularly challenging aspect of rural special education is providing general curriculum access. Computer-assisted instruction is one way to provide high-quality specialized instruction that does not require the attention of another teacher nor a paraprofessional while still possessing the ability to implement research-based specially designed instruction with fidelity. This article provides teachers with task analyses and considerations for creating their own computer-assisted instruction using widely available computer software.
