PLEASE NOTE: This course is designed for Professional Educators, if you are not a Professional Educator you will not be able to enroll at the time the course is opened.

The Special Education: Effective Practices for my General Education Classroom is a fifteen (15) hour interactive online course where K-12 teachers and administrators have the opportunity to review information regarding special education and apply the information to their general education classrooms.
