DCMP ~ Described and Captioned Media Programs
Accessible media are critical for students with disabilities to achieve Common Core Standards (CCSS) literacy and content goals. The accessible features (captioning and description) that DCMP adds to media are essential for students who are blind or deaf. But for other children, accessible media is also an exciting learning enhancement.
The DCMP media library has over 4,000 free-loan described and captioned media titles available to registered members, and members can watch media online or order a DVD copy to be shipped to them.

In the AIM Center's newest video series, you'll explore the story of a remarkable public school student from Fayette County, Georgia. Today, as a senior in high school, Bailey is a socially attuned young man engaged in learning and planning to go to college. When he entered middle school the picture was very different. Behavior issues related to autism were prominent. As the behavior issues were addressed, basic reading and written expression disabilities became evident. Learn about the supports that collectively contributed to Bailey's sustained growth and accomplishments.
This video is one in a series of five new brief videos from the AIM Center that highlight critical perspectives on strategies for success with AIM. Build your knowledge about AIM, integrate the videos into an AIM training session, share them with colleagues and families!
Videos (3-6 minutes) can be mixed and matched as desired:
* Introducing Bailey
* Gaining Independence with AIM and AT
* AIM and the 21st Century Classroom
* Creating Adaptable Classrooms for all Students
* Blending 21st Century Technology, AIM, and AT
