Project ACTION Releases New Curriculum: Improving Accessible Transportation Access and Choice for Students

Easter Seals Project ACTION has released a new curriculum to provide educators; transition, human services and transit professionals; families; and others with strategies for integrating transportation content, including travel instruction, into the educational experience for students, including those with disabilities. It is expected that educators can use this curriculum to reduce transportation challenges and improve transition outcomes for students with disabilities. Improving Accessible Transportation Access and Choice for Students has nine interactive, self-paced learning modules. Learners may download and customize the curriculum materials to align with academic content, instructional activities and unique learning opportunities available in their settings.

The curriculum may be downloaded free of charge from ESPA’s website. Please feel free to share this information with anyone who may be interested. For questions, please contact Judy Shanley, ESPA director of student engagement and mobility management, at
