All-New EDU Training Bundle with Special Education Courses for Teachers

TargetSolutions is releasing a bundle of special education training courses to help professionals understand their responsibilities in maintaining a safe and effective learning environment for students with special needs.

Creating a safe and productive learning environment is a top priority for educators. When it comes to instructing students with disabilities, there are unique challenges that teachers, caretakers, and other school staff must be prepared to ensure these students’ needs are fulfilled.

To help education professionals receive this training, TargetSolutions is releasing a new bundle of online courses for special education professionals – five of which are now available.

Special Needs Training Online Courses Overview

Developed in collaboration with three subject matter experts in special needs education, this bundle of courses provides introductory, as well as in-depth, information for professionals to effectively engage special needs students both in and outside of the classroom. In addition to covering essential lessons for staff, these courses are compliant with California education standards such as Section 504, IDEA and IEP.

Delivered in video-driven formats, these five courses are guided by an on-screen instructor. As individuals go through each course, they are also engaged with text and images that reinforce key concepts.
