In partnership with the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR), the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) has developed and published a set of high-leverage practices (HLPs) for special educators and teacher candidates. The HLPs are organized around four aspects of practice: (1) Collaboration, (2) Assessment, (3) Social/emotional/behavioral,(4) Instruction. In this learning module, you will learn the foundations of High Leverage Practices and how to apply them in an authentic classroom setting.
