This online PD course has three parts, each one dedicating to a particular special population: Autism, ADHD, and Gifted Learners. Along with enhancing an educator’s skills, the course is filled with ideas and suggestions that promote your confidence in handling children of differing abilities.

  • I thought this class gave a thoughtful look at gifted learning with good information and resources. The length was just right. It gave me enough time to look into things further, but still enough content to gain a lot of my learning there.

  • Wow! By far this was the most informative and beneficial course I've taken. Regardless of which students I may be working, this helps me to have a better understanding of why a student may be doing something or other, and gives me pause to be a bit more aware of particular needs (which is asking for a bit more understanding and a lot more patience on my part.)

  • I feel like it would be beneficial for every teacher to have more training in identifying these special populations and in addressing their special needs. I now feel that by taking courses like this one, we as educators could be more effective in meeting the needs of special populations.
