Cincinnati, Ohio (April 13, 2016) ­– More than 60 percent of students ages 6 through 21 served under IDEA, Part B, are educated in general education classrooms 80 percent or more of the day, according to the U.S. Department of Education. The importance of preparing all school staff – not just special education teachers – with effective special education training is critical to the success of these students. To assist district administrators in managing professional development in this area, Scenario Learning announces the addition of a new training management system to its Exceptional Child Online Professional Development System.

The new training management system in Exceptional Child allows district administrators to easily assign courses to school staff individually or to groups of staff, such as paraprofessionals, principals, elementary teachers or secondary teachers. The system also tracks training completions and allows for course customization, helping administrators easily and efficiently manage professional development for a single school or across an entire organization. 

“The Exceptional Child Professional Development System includes a wide variety of evidence-based online courses explained and simplified by the foremost thought leaders in special education, and the training management system adds an extra layer of convenience for administrators,” said Brian Taylor, CEO of Scenario Learning. “Not only can it help district administrators significantly reduce the often staggering potential costs of providing special education and related services, it helps all school staff support the students who may need the most help.”

As educators find increasingly diverse groups of students in general education classrooms, the importance of preparing all school staff with resources and instructional strategies and a clear understanding of the legal compliance requirements associated with special education cannot be overstated. Exceptional Child from Scenario Learning offers rigorous training authored by the nation’s leading special education experts in an on-demand format to address this need in the most convenient way possible.

Courses offered through the Exceptional Child Online Professional Development System focus on relevant and timely special education issues, including:

  • Autism Spectrum Disorder: Intervention Strategies by Betty Fry Williams, Ph.D. and Randy Lee Williams, Ph.D.
  • Emotional Behavior Disorder (EBD) Overview by Doug Cheney, Ph.D.
  • Bullying and Students with Special Needs by Scott Poland, Ph.D.
  • School Psychologist and Educator Partnership by Kellie Gray-Smith, Ph.D., LSSP
  • Special Education Introduction (both Elementary and Secondary) by Gary Greene, Ph.D.
  • Co-Teaching: Classroom Applications by Julie Bost, Ed.D.
  • IEP Compliance by Mary Anne Linden, Ph.D., J.D.

These and many more courses can be reviewed at www.exceptionalchild.com/course/list.

Exceptional Child will be demonstrated at the CEC Special Education Convention & Expo in St. Louis at the Exceptional Child booth (#1014).
