Interactive database description
An extensive collection of online resources for school personnel, policymakers, and parents nationwide created by the participants in the National Center and State Collaborative (NCSC). NCSC is a partnership of five centers and 24 states that developed a multi-state comprehensive assessment system for K-12 students with significant cognitive disabilities that includes a system of curriculum, instruction, and assessment, supporting instruction aligned to the Common Core State Standards. Among the resources in the wiki are curriculum and instruction materials to support classroom teaching, professional development tools for educators, tips and tools for parents, and a communication toolkit for teachers and speech-language pathologists serving students with disabilities who do not or do not yet use oral speech. These teaching and learning resources are now in use in every state, as well as in many other countries.
