TA-Live! High-Leverage Practices in Special Education

HLP Archived Videos


Cover page of High-Leverage Practices in Special Education Publication

Regular education teachers, exceptional student education (ESE) teachers, and teachers of the deaf/hard of hearing (TODHHs) all have specific skill sets for delivering instruction to the students they serve. RMTC-D/HH is excited to announce a webinar series connecting the dots between these industry experts using the publication High-Leverage Practices in Special Education from the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR) Center and the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). Throughout the year, the center will dive deep into the understanding that ESE professionals can use these strategies to improve instruction; however, TODHHs can also utilize these 22 high-leverage practices (HLPs) through the lens of their specialized knowledge of students who are deaf/hard of hearing (DHH).

RMTC-D/HH will be “flipping” the Technical Assistance Live! (TA-Live!) professional learning series. “Flipped” learning for this opportunity means RMTC-D/HH will post a video, discussing a high-leverage practice (HLP) with recommended resources addressing that specific HLP for review before the scheduled virtual discussion. Previously posted videos of each of the HLPs can be viewed on the HLP TA-Live! Archive.

RMTC-D/HH specialists and stakeholders will then meet virtually to provide live technical assistance for each other while discussing the application of these practices during a live session. These discussions will not be recorded but a notetaker will be provided to gather resources. Participants will have the opportunity to develop and sharpen core effective practices to leverage successful outcomes for students who are DHH across all settings, content areas, and grade levels. These resources will be maintained in a LiveBinder.
