  2. Identify naturally occurring opportunities to support communicative engagement for each part of the school day with different communication partners using a variety of communicative functions.
  3. Recognize and use environmental supports and communication partner strategies to promote communicative engagement.
  4. Create communication goals that align with standards, link to assessment information, and promote opportunities for engagement.
  5. Collaboratively collect and analyze meaningful data that increases communication and engagement.

Eligibility by State

At this time, UNC has secured approval to serve online education to students from every state and the U.S. Virgin Islands via our participation in NC-SARA and some additional state-by-state authorizations. However, we are not currently accepting students to our online programs who reside in Puerto Rico or the CNMIs. Due to how fluid these agreements can be at the state or federal level, we recommend checking our Eligibility by State page for details.
