Success for All Learners
Incorporating Acellus into programs designed for learners with special needs has completely changed the educational experience for both students and educators. Acellus gives educators a whole new arsenal of tools they can rely upon to more truly engage students, cater content to their need and academic skill level, and empower them to achieve their educational goals.
Acellus can be easily incorporated into IEPs for those students classified with Special Needs under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and allows schools to provide specialized services to students with various needs.
Courses Designed Specifically for Students with Special Needs…
Schools that have incorporated Acellus into their Special Education programs have found that students with special needs are very quickly able to start experiencing success, and are often even able to achieve grade level expectations. The International Academy of Science has spent years researching how students in special education programs learn best, and developing the methodology to most effectively reach these learners.
Acellus Special Education courses are specifically designed for students with disabilities, and incorporate the tools needed to assess, adapt, and individualize course material for students. These courses have been developed to be achievable by students with special needs, while still incorporating the rigor of standards-based courses. Content is taught at a deeper level, allowing students to spend more time on each concept, and increasing the students' depth of knowledge on each topic. This enables students to approach, and even meet, grade-level standards.
Acellus classes are broken into small concepts, and each concept is taught via video instruction. Videos are short and concise, and designed to convey just one concept. After the instruction, the student is given an assessment designed to determine the student's mastery of the concept presented. If the student shows mastery on that topic, they are moved forward to the next lesson. However, if additional help is required, another video will be delivered automatically, targeting the deficiency in the student's understanding.
