Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn strategies that focus on reducing barriers to help maximize student engagement and independence during distance learning.
  2. learn how to identify child-level factors that serve as barriers to accessing distance learning.
  3. learn strategies that can support parents and children with online platforms.


Many K–12 schools closed buildings and moved to remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Students with disabilities may exhibit unique challenges to online learning due to a variety of individual, family, and systems level factors. This presentation examines how executive functioning, communication, externalizing behaviors, and academic competence predicted distance learning engagement for students with disabilities. Attendees may benefit from increased knowledge of barriers to distance engagement, and evidence-based practices that may mitigate these barriers.
