Description: This valuable and unique book provides ideas for aligning IEP goals and objectives to academic State Standards. Current federal policy requires alternate achievement standards to be linked to grade level content that promotes access to the general curriculum. It provides a clear framework for aligning academic content for students with intellectual disabilities. Focuses on language arts and math, plus self-determination and assistive technology. Included are case study examples of alignment for students with moderate and severe disabilities.

Diane M. Browder PhD coordinates the doctoral program in special education at UNC Charlotte. Her current research focuses on access to the general curriculum for students with severe disabilities.

Ginevra Courtade PhD is an Assistant Professor at the University of Louisville. As a project trainer, she conducts classroom consultations and training for grant programs involving students with significant disabilities.
