AbleNet introduces its new Focus on STEM non-fiction classroom library with adapted classroom activities and instruction for special education.

June 27, 2012 - PRLog -- ROSEVILLE, Minn. – June 27, 2012 – AbleNet announced today the introduction of its new Focus on STEM non-fiction classroom library for special education.  Focus on STEM offers students with disabilities the opportunity to learn literacy skills while gaining background knowledge in science, technology, engineering and math.  Included in this new offering are 360 non-fiction books with 60 unique titles, audio recordings of each unique title, and over 420 online downloadable lessons and activities that are adapted for mild, moderate, and severe disabilities.

“We can all appreciate the importance of building STEM knowledge for all students in our educational system”, stated Jen Thalhuber, CEO of AbleNet.  “We as a country have emphasized this learning as a key element of our educational foundation.  I felt AbleNet needed to make sure that our students in special education receive the same emphasis and knowledge development in these subject areas.  We have taken this knowledge development a step further for our students to include over 420 online differentiated activities designed specifically to support STEM learning for students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities.”

The AbleNet curricular team continues to emphasize the value of developing programs that build off of excellent content and subject matter available to regular educators, but in a unique way so that all students in special education can reach their potential in STEM subjects and in all subjects available through AbleNet.  To find out more about Focus on STEM or any of AbleNet’s other curricular programs visit http://www.ablenetinc.com/curriculum.
