Special Education Group Professional Development

With precision, ADAC teaches your teachers so that all of your learners can be taught.

We work with you and your faculty to:

  • Understand – and provide to your leadership team– actionable knowledge of IDEA’s child-find processes and procedures and, also, how to responsibly interpret an IEP/ISP
  • Attain deeper knowledge of learning differences, with specific focus paid to the most common learning differences (ADHD, dyslexia, auditory processing disorders, & disabilities related to executive functioning), and how these and other learning differences can and should be proactively identified
  • Develop and implement instructional strategies, such as accommodations and modifications, that target a range of learning differences

Until a school’s faculty attain the facility to teach all learners, a school’s aspiration to become more inclusive remains merely aspirational. Key to turning such aspiration into operation is knowing how to teach students with learning differences and then concretely applying that knowledge to what goes on both inside the classroom and between each teacher and each student.

When ADAC is invited in, we help your faculty to attain the requisite aptitudes and attitudes necessary for your school to offer a truly inclusive education. Inclusivity becomes operationalized. Aspiration becomes reality.

Federal title programs and IDEA may partially or fully fund for your teachers this SPED professional development. With unlocking this funding, we can help you!
