High-Leverage Practices at CEC 2019

This Council for Exceptional Children 2019 Convention session in Indianapolis, Indiana showcased the recently released professional development guide developed by the Council for Exceptional Children and the CEEDAR Center to support school district leaders in introducing and sharing the high-leverage practices (HLPs) with their staff members. This downloadable online guide provides practical tools and materials about the HLPS in three sections including: Getting to Know HLPs, Sharing HLPs and Reflecting on HLPS. High-leverage practices are frequently occurring, educational practices that all special educators should know how to do. These practices are evidence based, meaning that they reflect effective methods that when successfully implemented can improve results for struggling learners. The guide can be accessed at www.highleveragepractices.org.
