This session will focus on the use of teacher-directed PD to build the implementation and fidelity of EBPs to support grade-aligned instruction for students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities. This interactive session will use High Leverage Practices (HLP; CEC, 2018), EBPs for students with Moderate to Severe ID, and ASD, the Four Stages of Learning to develop a plan for self-assessment of professional development needs through self-directed (teacher) professional development. This session will include video examples and model planning documents.

Participants will be able to:

  • Identify evidence-based practices and high leverage practices for students with moderate to severe intellectual disabilities.
  • Describe how the four stages of learning can be used to support teacher directed professional goal setting.
  • List and outline the components needed to thoughtfully plan their own professional development plans to build their use of EBPs and HLPs, aligned to their own learning needs and interests.
