Parent and Educator Resources

The U.S. Department of Education (USED) recently shared resources for parents and educators aimed at helping students with disabilities succeed in school careers and life. We thought these were valuable resources to share because they are practical tools to help all of us live up to our strategic plan commitment that All Means All.
  • Website Featuring Best Practices from the Field - USED created a new website to house resources developed by its grantees on effective IEPs, instructional practices, assessments, student engagement, school climate, home and school partnerships, and post-school transition. 
  • Classroom Strategies for Teachers - USED compiled tips for teachers with evidence-based, positive, proactive and responsive classroom behavior intervention and support strategies. The techniques are aimed at helping capitalize on instructional time and decrease disruptions.
  • Positive Behavioral Interventions and Support (PBIS) Implementation Blueprint for Educators - The National Technical Assistance Center on Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports prepared a new two-part blueprint on teaching behavioral expectations throughout schools. 
  • Tip Sheets for Parent - The tip sheets developed by the National Technical Assistance Center on Transition in collaboration with the Center for Parent Information and Resources are meant to help children with disabilities successfully reach adulthood. The tip sheets include information on financial management, healthcare and independent living.
