Courses for Special Education Teachers

Live Webinars and Online Courses for Professional Development

Special educators know that classrooms are powerful, positive places. That’s why Education Resources courses for special educators do more than provide continuing education units (CEUs) — they create team collaboration.

At ERI, we know that special educators, guidance counselors, developmental specialists and teachers help students improve critical functions in their lives every day. We know you are always seeking new strategies, new ways to help and new ways to move children forward. Our varied courses from expert instructors reignite your passion for impacting the lives of your students every day. 


Continuing Education Courses for Special Educators

Effective teachers constantly strive to improve their teaching methods and their classrooms. Expanding your knowledge through continuing education courses for special educators will benefit you by:

  • Developing your communication skills: Our courses allow you to engage with experts on special education topics and find new ways to communicate and work with your students to improve their lives.
  • Providing more training on specific subject matters: Whether you teach children with motor challenges or differences in cognitive function, our courses give you the relevant information you need for your classroom.
  • Enhancing your problem-solving skills: Our instructors teach you how to evaluate each student’s unique situation and apply critical thinking to offer the most effective intervention. 
  • Sharing new ways to reach students of any skill level: Students in special education tend to vary widely in their cognitive and motor functions. Our courses teach you to meet students wherever they are.
  • Gain the skills to maintain a classroom despite roadblocks: A classroom with special needs students requires a specialized approach. We give teachers and other professionals the knowledge to provide a valuable classroom experience.
