EDI Students Worked with Families with Children with Disabilities through the Family Collaboration Service Learning Project
The Family Collaboration Service Learning project in EDI 4/519.01 Assessments for Special Education connected students with families with children with disabilities through Starbridge (Formerly as the Advocacy Center of Rochester), a non-profit organization for families. It provided students a great opportunity to make meaningful connections between academic content and community service, and to help deepen their learning on the influence of families and the collaboration among teachers-professionals-families on children, especially children with special needs. This project was sponsored by the Curriculum Development Grant for New Service Learning Opportunities funded by The College at Brockport.
