NCWD/Youth and NCLD Share Joint Blog on ILPs and Inclusive Personalized Learning

On Tuesday, April 17th, Getting Smart published “6 Steps to Ensuring ILPs Better Support Inclusive Personalized Learning“, a blog written collaboratively between the National Center for Learning Disabilities (NCLD) and the National Collaborative on Workforce and Disability for Youth (NCWD/Youth). This joint blog highlights the adoption of individualized learning plans (ILPs) as a key strategy in ensuring that students’ academic plans align with and support their career goals. However, it also acknowledges that ILPs often fail to meaningfully achieve equity and inclusion through failures to address inaccessibility or bias in implementation. In response, the blog offers a set of steps for maximizing the potential of ILPs for students with disabilities. These steps include practices such as expanding stakeholders understanding of disability, making learning environments accessible, fully engaging students in conversations that affect them, and ensuring that students’ ILPs complement their Individual Education Programs (IEPs).
