A few months ago we were contacted by a volunteer researcher with EducatorLabs. They said that they read our post on Literacy for All Learners and were interested in sharing some resources. They gave us an amazing list of links and we did not want to be stingy…so we are sharing them with you. Here are 13 links to disability resources on the web that you may not know about. Below is the email we received by Educator Labs. They gave us permission to reprint the links.
I’m a volunteer researcher with EducatorLabs. We recently began gathering resources for K-12 diverse abilities curriculum. The goal of the curriculum is to promote respect and appreciation among all classmates.
Our research work has turned up a large number of fantastic resources (like the ones listed here on your site: http://www.thinkinclusive.us/
literacy-for-all-learners- links-to-adapted-book- resources/ — thank you!).
I’m honored to be able to share some of the resources we’ve uncovered so far. I would love to be able to tell the team that you added some (or all!) of these to your site – please let me know if you do so I can show them how their efforts have benefited the internet at large.
