Are you a district or school system in need of on-demand professional development delivered when you want it to support your students with diverse learning needs? Then, the mini-course bundle is for you!
Principles of Inclusive Education and Universal Design for Learning
This mini-course provides an introduction to inclusive and special education, framing the inclusion of students with disabilities within an equity context. Inclusion is discussed both in theory and practice. Techniques for implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in general education classrooms are reviewed to support learners of all abilities.
Reducing and Preventing Challenging Behaviors
This mini-course offers prevention strategies to reduce instances of challenging behavior. Whole class strategies, and proactive, low intensity techniques are reviewed. The concepts that basic needs drive behavior and all behavior has a function are emphasized.
This course reviews the importance of adapting the curriculum through accommodations and modifications. These terms are defined and examples are provided. Upon completion, participants will understand that students do not need to "leave to learn" when appropriate supports are provided.
Facilitating Student Independence
In this mini-course, participants learn how to facilitate the independence of students with disabilities. Topics such as reduction of prompts, proximity control, and facilitating friendships and social interactions are reviewed. This course is especially valuable for paraprofessionals.
The mini-courses are each anchored by several "big ideas" central to learning. Big ideas are reviewed through videos and articles. Participants engage in checkpoint quizzes and questionnaires to gauge their understanding. Mini-courses are dynamic in that they can range anywhere from 90 minutes of required material to a supplemented two hours and 30 minutes when additional resources are explored. Flexibility is built into the course to allow for varying time needs or for participants who want to explore the topic more deeply.

Up to 500 participants - $9,900
