Thanks to stimulus funding, there is now $12 billion available for IDEA and Title I programs. Now the challenge is, how can schools sort through the thousands of products out there and find the best fits for their needs?

Enter the Turbo Solutions Builder. PCI Education has assembled a list of more than 1,300 products from PCI Education and many other publishers into one searchable database. The free online tool begins by asking each user to select criteria including grade level, disability category, subject area, and funding type. Based on these selections, the Turbo Solutions Builder searches a database of qualified materials and returns a list of the top product recommendations. The results are displayed in a flexible summary format that provides expanded product information and multiple options for the best
product fit. Users can then create a wish list on the site and e-mail it, print the summary information, or export the summary to pdf. The database also includes links to research, white papers, and other useful data to help schools make better-informed decisions.
