EDI 4/519.01 Students Worked with Families with Children with Disabilities through the Family Collaboration Service Learning Project in Spring 2018
The Family Collaboration Service Learning project in EDI 4/519.01 Assessments for Special Education connected students with families with children with disabilities through Starbrige (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 Service Learning Opportunities, which was funded by the Institute for Engaged Learning, The College at Brockport.
