High-Leverage Practices (HLPs) for Students with Disabilities (CEEDAR & CEC): Information, Resources & Videos


In partnership with the Collaboration for Effective Educator Development, Accountability and Reform (CEEDAR), the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) has developed and published a set of high-leverage practices (HLPs) for teachers of students with disabilities. The HLPs are organized around four aspects of practice: Collaboration, Assessment, Social/Emotional/Behavioral and Instruction. 

These resources are intended to be used as professional learning activities for educators to increase their knowledge, understanding, and use of the HLPs for students with disabilities.
