What makes the best special education departments stand out from the rest?

SPED expert Ayo Jones says that one of the indicators of a quality special education department is having effective teams. When teams work together to accomplish one goal and put students first, they are more likely to succeed academically.

As an educator, you don’t have control over who comes into your classroom and what needs they have, but you do have control over how you put together a program that helps every student thrive, no matter what their needs are.

In this 1-hour course, Ms. Jones uses her years of SPED experience to help teachers learn the 10 steps to creating student-centered special education teams.

After taking this course, you’ll understand more about:

  • A good handoff
  • Student needs
  • Cohesive teams
