TIES Center Briefs: The General Education Curriculum - Not an Alternate Curriculum! (Brief #5)
Part of the TIES Center Briefs series.
- Ricki Sabia, Martha L Thurlow, Sheryl Lazarus
This parent brief was developed to help parents determine whether their child with significant cognitive disabilities is provided meaningful access to the general education curriculum. It addresses the myth that students with the most significant cognitive disabilities who take the state’s alternate assessment based on the alternate academic achievement standards (AA-AAAS). It provides characteristics of an alternate curriculum and the general education curriculum as well as some “look fors,” which are quick ways for parents to determine whether their child with significant cognitive disabilities is being provided meaningful access to the general education curriculum.
