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
- 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
Educators - The National Technical Assistance Center on
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports prepared a new
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.
