Learning Resources

The central resource in this CEEDAR Course Enhancement Module are two approximately three-hour Anchor Presentations. The presentations are designed for use in pre-service educator preparation or professional development programs for in-service professionals. The presentation includes a Power Point with Speaker Notes, links to videos, activities for participants, and additional resources and readings. The CEM is designed as a compendium of resources to complement the Innovation Configuration on Evidence-Based Practices for Students with Severe Disabilities to ensure the use of evidence-based practices are used in ongoing professional development.

Although these Learning Resources can stand alone, we do provide a variety of optional supplemental materials. The multimedia section contains videos and supplementary online modules. The Course and PD Outlines section contains additional and more niche presentations on this CEM topic.
