Special Education Professional Development
State-specific Special Education professional development
Special Education professional development is available from a variety of different providers, most of whom offer generic seminars and workshops to school districts nationwide. It is important to note, however, that there are vast differences between special education requirements and best-practices from state to state. So it makes sense to select a professional development provider who has state-specific expertise.
The Centris Group provides Special Education products and services created especially for school districts in New York.
