Supporting Students with Learning & Attention Issues During Covid-19

By the Boston University Wheelock College of Education and Human Development CERES Institute for Children and Youth

The CERES Institute and the National Center for Learning Disabilities partnered on a mixed methods research study to develop a deeper understanding of general educators’ experiences teaching students with learning and attention issues during the COVID-19 pandemic. In Spring 2021, CERES Institute administered two national surveys and facilitated three focus groups with educators from Understood. Our brief Supporting Students with Learning and Attention Issues During COVID-19 -Insights from General Educators, summarizes findings from this research.

The findings informed a set of resources released by NCLD, Forward Together 2.0, with specific resources on collaboration, flexible grouping, positive behavior strategies and recommendations for school, district and state leaders.
