Keep Students in the LRE With The Capable Classroom™

The Capable Classroom™ is a suite of Tier 1 and Tier 2 interventions that can be introduced at the classroom level. These interventions promote learning through play with mixed groups of typical and non-typical students. All the activities include easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions, so aides, parent volunteers, and paraprofessionals can implement them, and teachers can focus on other classroom priorities.
