 Curriculum Access for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities


The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires that students with disabilities have access to the general curriculum as well as an educational plan that meets their unique academic, developmental and functional needs. Instruction based on Georgia’s Standards is to be provided for all students. Students with the most significant cognitive disabilities can receive access to the curriculum through instruction that addresses IEP skills in the context of Georgia’s Standards​​ and through instruction on relevant life skills.
