What educators and parents need to know about AIM

AIM Part One: Introduction and Legal Context

We will focus on the legal foundation of Accessible Instructional Material (AIM): the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (currently called NCLB) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004).  Both include compelling requirements for state and local education agencies (SEAs and LEAs) to ensure that all students, including those with disabilities, receive the supports and services they need to access, participate and achieve in the general educational curriculum.

AIM Part Two: Navigating the Decision-Making Process

We will focus on the decision-making process related to accessible instructional materials (AIM) and look closely at how each of the steps requires solid thinking and planning on the part of the individualized education program (IEP) team.

AIM Part Three: AIM Support at Your Fingertips

We will focus on the National Center on Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM Center) web site and the products that are available to support everyone in the use of accessible instructional materials.
