The Inclusion in Texas Network has been working to develop accessibility and specialization tools that will help teachers more easily provide supports to their students. Each accommodation has a drop-down menu that provides links to free tools that can help provide the accommodation or specialization. Topics include minimizing distractions, text to speech, vocabulary, and reading and math content supports. Additional resources will be added. Go to https://www.inclusionintexas.org to explore the tools.
