Supports for Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities (Arkansas Division of Elementary and Secondary Education)


This resource is being provided to support teachers of students with significant cognitive disabilities. The lesson ideas are divided by grade-band from kindergarten through high school. Sections are divided into functional activities associated with time of day (morning, afternoon, evening). Parents should be assured that they are not expected to complete each activity with their child each day. The teacher and parent should work together to select activities that will help meet the needs of the individual student. When possible, multiple resources are provided for a task, both virtual and those that do not require that the child have access to technology. Here you will find a sample lesson schedule and blank template to go along with these activities for both students and parents with and without access to technology.

Grade Bands

  • K-3
