How can educators accelerate learning and promote progress for students with disabilities as they return to school this fall? Join the PROGRESS Center for a webinar on August 24, 2021, at 3:00 pm ET. During this webinar, presenters will highlight six high-leverage, evidence-based practices shown to support implementation of high-quality instructional programming for students with and at risk for disabilities regardless of their identified disability category or grade span. These practices were identified through an extensive, systematic meta-analysis. In addition to sharing the practices, the presenters will demonstrate how educators can use resources, including practice briefs and learning modules, to accelerate learning and support pandemic recovery efforts. The webinar will conclude with a question-and-answer session with the researchers responsible for conducting the study. If you are unable to attend the live event, it will be recorded and available on the PROGRESS website after the event.
