DL #17: Planning for Instruction both at School and Distance Learning: The 5C Process (TIES Center, University of Minnesota)


The 5C Process is a five step process focused on building continuity across lifelong learning priorities, the annual IEP goals, the inclusive environments (at school or at home) and instructional support for students with significant cognitive disabilities. The process outlines a plan for transitioning instruction between school and home during periods of distance learning. While the 5C Process was developed specifically for students with significant cognitive disabilities, we believe this process could be helpful in planning instruction for all students with disabilities.
