This PD Online course, Special Education: From Goals to Growth, will help general and special education teachers better understand their roles for supporting students with special needs. Learners will also gain valuable insight for meeting both the letter and spirit of the law to ensure the success of special education students in the general education curriculum. After taking this course, educators will understand how to create a culture of inclusion, implement multi-tiered systems of support, differentiate between accommodations and modifications, establish curriculum based goals for students, design growth plans, and apply various models of co-teaching. Learners will also come away with a strong sense of how to track, manage, and adjust a student’s accommodations using a data-driven measurement model that allows for flexibility and continuous improvement for the student throughout the school year.
