Education Programs for Students with Disabilities
Research-based tools for assessment, instruction, and progress monitoring
- Online diagnostic assessments identify learning gaps and present grade levels for students with disabilities
- Automatic diagnostic data reporting supports accurate IEP development with a time savings of 50% +
- Specially Designed Instruction (SDI) in reading and math delivers data-driven lessons at students’ Zone of Proximal Development
- Real-time one-click progress monitoring ensures that student progress toward annual goals is measured frequently
- Appropriate for all students with disabilities including cognitive disabilities, learning disabilities, and language impairment
Achieve ongoing academic progress for all children with disabilities
Step 1: LGL diagnostics analyze each individual child’s standards-based learning gaps and present levels (PLAAFP).
Step 2: IEP teams develop individualized education programs (IEPs) using LGL narratives and standards-based data.
Step 3: LGL system assigns specially designed instruction (SDI) for students with disabilities at the appropriate ZPD. Teachers can always self-select lesson assignments.
Step 4: LGL provides standards-based formative assessments that are vertically scaled into the original dataset.
Step 5: LGL provides ongoing progress monitoring, tracking student performance from the initial evaluation. No data collection required by teachers.
LGL provides reporting and narratives for classroom teachers and parents of students with disabilities.
Why use Let’s Go Learn’s Special Education Programs? Let our customers explain!
“Students at the Boys & Girls Club of the Suncoast love Let’s Go Learn lessons. They have music and animation and are like games! The more they play, the more they learn!”
“Let’s Go Learn is a lifesaver. They have assessments that diagnose gaps and automatically place students at the best instructional level. Plus there are built-in formative assessments and progress monitoring that allow me to focus on what each student needs.”
Step 1: Special Education Diagnostics in Reading and Math
Our online diagnostics identify the present level of academic performance and functional performance (PLAAPF) for individuals with disabilities and thus find their zone of proximal development. Because our assessment process is adaptive, students spend less time on problems that are too easy or difficult. The result: a sharp decrease in testing time and student anxiety.
Math assessments are aligned to state educational standards. For elementary students, they include numbers and operations, measurement, geometry, data analysis, and algebraic thinking. For middle school students and secondary students, assessments include Algebra I.
Reading assessments are aligned to state educational standards and include phonics, word recognition, high-frequency words, spelling, oral vocabulary, and reading comprehension. Dyslexia screening, phonemic awareness and fluency assessments are also available.
Step 2: IEP-Aligned Reporting
Our assessment reporting is organized to support Individualized Education Program (IEP) requirements: goals, benchmarks, and PLAAFP/present level equivalencies for all subskills. With our next-generation tools, classroom teachers can focus on creating the optimal instruction for students rather than on statistical analysis.
“Our IEP teams report a 50% time savings in writing their IEPs with LGL’s aligned data and narratives.”
Step 3: Data-Driven Instruction That Drives Educational Progress for Students with IEPs
Our system uses diagnostic data with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to assign instruction for students designed to address learning gaps. Online specially designed instructional (SDI) courses are automatically created to use as supplemental education curriculum. Teachers can also assign lessons to individual students as needed.
Our reading and math courses are especially appropriate for students with disabilities:
- Correlate to all state standards
- Integrate critical thinking strategies with standards-based skills development
- Include direct instruction and practice
- Provide feedback for incorrect responses
- Use assistive technology by combining music, voice intonation, animation, and game-like interactivity
Step 4: Built-In Formative Assessments that Auto-Adjust Instruction
With a few clicks, classroom teachers can assign our built-in formative tests and assessments to individual students with disabilities at regular intervals. Not only do these ensure that students have mastered learning objectives, but they ensure FAPE compliance. Formative assessments can be used to monitor educational progress in all educational environments, including RTI programs, afterschool, and summer school. Our next-gen system uses the formative assessment data to automatically update the student learning path.
LESSON QUIZZES: At daily or weekly intervals, teachers queue up quizzes on skills or concepts learned in the classroom or online. The system then assesses mastery and reports on, compares, and stores the data.
UNIT ASSESSMENTS: At weekly, monthly, or quarterly intervals, teachers queue up assessments for targeted units. The system analyzes and reports the data. Then it updates the student’s learning path.
Step 5: One-Click Progress Monitoring
Our educational tools for students with disabilities capture and monitor student progress in real-time.
- Captures and stores all student test data into a single vertically-scaled dataset
- Presents data in meaningful progress reports
- Supports continuous progress monitoring, benchmark and goal attainment, and communication with parents of children with disabilities
- Provides special education services with quarterly and annual compliance testing data
- Provides data collection for special education teachers at school districts, whether they provide public education or private education
And to Make It All Work: Customized Professional Development
