The Council for Exceptional Children has partnered with the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR), to develop and publish a set of High Leverage Practices (HLPs) for special educators and teacher candidates. The fundamental purpose of the project was to identify effective practices for supporting special educators (McKleskey, et al, 2017).
The HLPs are organized around four aspects of practice:
Administrators can request a bound copy of the High Leverage Practices from T-TAC ODU.
High-leverage practices (HLPs) and evidence-based practices (EBPs) when used together can become powerful tools for improving student outcomes.
The HLP Video Series (Kennedy, et al, 2018) can support teacher educators and new teachers with concrete, easy-to-access examples of HLPs in action, in real classrooms, with real students. The videos can be used as a resource to augment professional learning.
