TATS Topics – August

The TATS Topic of the month is Classroom Spaces

The Classroom Spaces section of TATS Rock Your Classroom provides helpful resources for developing strategies for incorporating supports into the classroom set-up. These supports include clearly defined areas and various uses of visual supports for schedules, routines and classroom expectations.


The information in Classroom Spaces is especially helpful for TEACHERS. Please register for the August Learning Community to join in a TATS discussion related to the topics included in Classroom Spaces.

The following important documents are included on each Informational page of Rock Your Classroom. These documents are useful in the development of IEP goals and objectives and in identifying and planning for individual strategies to support development and learning.
