This presentation aligns with the 2018 theme, 'Be Creative - Innovative Solutions for an Inclusive Life,' by equipping participants with knowledge of how to apply innovative adaptation strategies to create accessible general education curriculum for all students. During this session, participants will have the opportunity to creatively find solutions for adapting curriculum, thereby ensuring an equitable education for all students. We must allow ourselves to think outside the box if we are to develop successful inclusive environments. This hands-on, interactive presentation provides an understanding of universal design for learning and curricular adaptations while highlighting the importance of collaboration. Peer supports and technology supports will be emphasized as an integral part in developing creative avenues for student access. Practical planning tools that facilitate equitable instructional delivery and assessment of learning will be shared. Rethinking access to the general education curriculum requires flexibility, creativity, and determination and can pave the way for meaningful inclusive schooling.
