On-Demand HLP Deep Dive Series
The High-Leverage Practices (HLPs) for Students With Disabilities are all about good teaching and improving outcomes for students with exceptionalities. Our new On-Demand HLP Deep Dive Series is your chance to hone your skills and revitalize your teaching game whether you're virtual or back in a classroom.
In this fully online, on-demand program, you’ll get the instruction, modeling, resources, and flexibility to access what you need, when you need it. We’ve put everything you need to learn about the HLPs outlined below in one place and provide some guidance for making your learning journey meaningful, personalized, and achievable so you can implement the practices right away—and even more effectively.
Only have time for or need one or two of the practices right now? That’s fine—take a deep-dive into the specific practices you need now and explore the rest later. Earn professional development hours (PDHs) for each module you complete, or for completing the whole program!
