Welcome to Pops Spedster And Company's Teaching Resources Home Page,

where special education students, teachers, parents/caregivers and home schoolers will find instructional materials for students with intellectual impairments, which are also appropriate charter school materials in regular education classes. Some ELL students might also benefit from the materials being offered on this site.

DATA COLLECTED FROM THIS INSTRUCTIONAL UNIT CAN BE SUED WITH THE DAI SYSTEM TO BE A TOOL FOR DEVELOPING STUDENT IEP GOALS.

 

 

 

 

DEVELOPMENTALLY APPROPRIATE INSTRUCTION

I have been designing an instructional system since 2008. I call it Developmentally Appropriate Instruction (DAI). It is a system that starts with a student probe I call the DAI Assessment. The results of the probe should give an IEP team the developmental information about the student. The team can then design adaptive instruction to meet the specific, individualized needs of the student with Developmentally Determined Varying Abilities (DDVAs).

In short DAI supports the instructional pedagogy that is based on designing instruction for each individual student which conorms with that student's developmental level rather than grade or age level. Thus, a high school student with a developmental age of 4 years, might never succeed in a regular education setting where peers have a developmental level of teenagers.

I have attempted to create several lesson plans that address Common Core standards by using music as a method for teaching math concepts such as fractions and division processes. The following video from Dr. Covington, an occupational therapist, suggests many other uses for music in the classroom. I know the discussions I have read from my Linked In groups have often addressed the use of music therapy. Generally, it seems that school districts often reject including music therapy in IEPs simply because many music programs have been cut due to budgetary requirements. The argument that music therapy is not a research-based instructional method is also used.

Watch Dr. Covington's video and see if you can find good arguments for including his "Therakey" system in an IEP you might be in the process of writing.
