Webinar Series Helps Teach Best Practices in Special Education

Accelify Solutions announced today a new webinar series devoted to providing free professional development to special education professionals.

" Each webinar will feature policy experts, industry leaders, and educators with experience implementing best practices in special education. Webinars are free and will occur monthly,” said Accelify Solutions in a statement.

The first webinar will deal with special education for the youngest learners and will be available next Thursday, Feb. 18, at 3 p.m. ET.

Titled PreK, Policy, and Prevention: How High Quality PreK Can Have a Profound Impact on the Lives of Students with Disabilities, the webinar will be led by Dr. Robert Pasternack, Accelify's Chief Academic Officer and former Assistant Secretary for the Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services at the U.S Department of Education, Accelify Solutions said.

The webinar will last an hour and will explore the impact high quality preK programs " can have on the lives of students with disabilities.”

Dr. Pasternack will also discuss how the new education legislation, the Every Student Succeeds Act will effect special education in preK, among other things.

"PreK is key to reducing inappropriate referrals to special education by providing high quality early childhood experiences. I am honored to have the opportunity to share strategies and evidence-based practices with other educators and members of the learning community for promoting high quality early education for children and their families. PreK promises the best return on investment for any money spent in education,” said Pasternack in the statement.
