Supporting Students With Complex Learning Needs in Virtual and Remote Learning Environments (Virginia Department of Education, VDOE)


Remote Learning Guidance:
Students with disabilities often have complex needs regarding accessing the curriculum. The individual needs of students are varied and present challenges for families currently working to provide instruction in virtual and remote learning environments. Families need to feel comfortable requesting more frequent communication and increased support from educators who are assisting with instruction in the home.

The purpose of this document is to help families identify ways they can work with educators to provide instruction and support to students with complex needs. Family-school collaboration is critical to remote learning.
