Appropriate Curriculum for Students with Disabilities
Public education to learn community skills
Be with general education peers
Adjusted state standards

Advances community access
Ability to shop (money skills)
Domestic- Self helps skills
Taking care of themselves (laundry skills, preparing food, hygiene, putting away groceries, and dressing)

Looking at what the student needs as a whole
A combination between SBC and FC
Don't know why grade-level standards are needed
Student's right to general education
"Normal Life" Functional over Academic
Standards-Based vs. Functional
Helps students with Future Career in mind using academics.
Functionality is not a pre-requisite.
Helps students become independent community members that make life decisions.
Effectively function as an adult.
Self reliance is key.
Is it limiting the potential of students to just work on Functional Skills?
Standards-Based and Functional
I find that utilizing a combination of the two would be the most beneficial for the students success.
