As schools develop and improve their STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) programs, do you find yourself wondering how students with moderate to significant disabilities could also benefit and have access to the same materials and content? This recorded webinar shares how the presenters created a STEAM program for their students with complex needs that includes additional emphasis on choice making, communication, and literacy skills.They share the steps taken to start the program, how concepts were adapted, and some favorite activities, apps, and tech tools. As a result of this presentation, participants will: have an understanding of STEAM, learn ways to adapt STEAM activities and integrate into existing curriculum, and identify technology tools to support STEAM lessons and activities.
