Texas District Finds Support for UDL and RTI Programs through Atomic Learning
November 11, 2011 — Little Falls, Minnesota — At North East ISD in San Antonio, Texas, professional development training from Atomic Learning helps support Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and is helping students in Response to Intervention (RTI) programs by giving general education teachers access to technology training to support all learners.
North East ISD has just over 65,000 students, and over 4,000 faculty and staff who all have access to the Atomic Learning Assistive Technology collection of training. This is also open to the students and parents in the district. “Atomic Learning is useful for a variety of students, whether general education or gifted and talented,” North East’s Program Coordinator, Terri Grundy said.
The primary focus for North East’s Atomic Learning training is on special education teachers. But when there is a general ed student who is having difficulties, or has identified the need for special support, Terri and her team are able to quickly send a link to the special ed and general ed teacher on the necessary training, and the problem is addressed. It helps the Assistive Technology team focus on other projects.
