The increased demands of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) create many challenges for learners with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This laminated reference guide by Wendy Ashcroft, Sue Argiro and Joyce Keohane presents a step-by-step process for assessing students' strengths and challenges, developing accommodations and modifications, and selecting instructional strategies to be incorporated into a standards-based individual education program (IEP). It is designed for use with students in grades 1-8. The six-page (tri-fold) guide includes detailed examples of applying the process for students needing moderate (level 1) support to those needing very substantial (level 3) support. It describes an array of autism-specific, teacher friendly, evidence-based practices for addressing social skills, communication, and behavior.

The Common Core State Standards, which have been adopted in most states in the country, delineate the skills and knowledge that students are expected to possess at each grade level (K-12) in order to be college and career ready (CCR) by the time they graduate high school. They are designed to ensure that ALL American students--including students with disabilities-- receive a high quality education that positions them for lifelong success. In IEPs & CCSS: Specially Designed Instructional Strategies, author Toby Karten presents a variety of specially designed instructional strategies and interventions that teachers and IEP team members can use to connect the individualized education programs (IEPs) of students with disabilities to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS).This six-page (tri-fold) laminated guide offers a side-by-side outline of the required components of an IEP and the criteria for instruction according to the CCSS. Karten explains that when developing a student's IEP, the IEP team should include both individualized goals (the behaviors/skills/tasks the student is expected to learn) and the grade level standards of the CCSS.The guide offers examples of accommodations and instructional supports to include in a student's IEP to help him/her meet IEP goals as well as math and literacy standards. Specially designed instruction may include (among other things) * the involvement of additional service providers * instructional strategies based on universal design for learning (UDL) principles * assistive technology devices and services * incorporating the students interests and strengths Five scenarios are provided to demonstrate a variety of ways instruction can be individualized for students with specific classifications, strengths and interests. The guide also outlines a step-by-step approach for helping students with IEPs achieve the standards. Additional online and print resources are also included, making this guide a valuable quick reference tool for IEP team members.

The CCSS is an education initiative in the United States that details what K-12 students should understand in English language arts and mathematics by the end of each grade. The initiative seeks to establish consistent education standards across the United States and ensure that graduating students are prepared to enter college or the workforce. As of 2015, forty-three states had adopted the CCSS. With the implementation of the CCSS, it is critical that speech-language pathologists collaborate with educators to enable the success of students with communication disorders as well as English language learners. This text offers a practical approach for application of the CCSS with a parallel analysis of children's strengths and needs to create a template for intervention. It addresses strategies to facilitate the success of students in accessing and achieving the expectations of the general curriculum, with a focus on students with communication disorders, hearing loss, vision loss, deaf-blindness, specific learning disabilities, autism, multiple disabilities, and English language learners. Key features include: Background and implications of the CCSSChapters written by experts in the fieldTools for analysis of the language expectations of the CCSS and a framework for aligning intervention (both direct and classroom-based) with the CCSS for students at elementary and secondary levelsCollaboration strategies to facilitate success in the classroomMultiple case studies Common Core State Standards and the Speech-Language Pathologist is a must-have resource for any speech-language pathologist working with children, as well as their education and administration partners.

Given the prevalence of student diversity, schools are struggling to find ways to help with the implementation of CCSS. With the wide range of student learning styles, socioeconomic backgrounds and life experiences, one key to meeting this challenge is the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Originally developed to address the instructional needs of students with disabilities, UDL is now being embraced as an answer to creating learning environments where all students, regardless of their individual differences, can meet the CCSS. Designed for classroom teachers, this guide provides practical strategies and best practices for utilizing UDL as a means to help students successfully access and achieve the CCSS.
