Top 10 Tips for Teachers 1. Learn about the learner from the learner One teacher asked his student to create a list of teaching tips that might help kids with learning differences; the teacher then published the guide and passed it out to all the educators in the school. Be sure to ask parents for tips on approaches they have found most useful at home and see if they can provide videos of the student engaged in different family and community activities.

Use these simple tips to support students with autism in the inclusive classroom

2. Teach to fascinations One of my former students, Patrick, had few friendships and seldom spoke to others until a new student came into the classroom wearing a Star Wars T-shirt. Patrick’s face lit up upon seeing the shirt and he began bombarding the newcomer with questions and trivia about his favorite film.

What is Project SEARCH®


and how does it work?

Find out in this article from our Disabilities newsletter: It costs employers money to recruit, train, and retain good employees. They want workers who are dependable, well trained (and willing to be trained), who get along with others, and who have a good attitude. In cities and towns around the country, businesses are discovering prospective employees with these very qualities who have graduated from the Project SEARCH® High School Transition Program. Project SEARCH is a school-to-work program with a remarkable success rate for placing students with intellectual and developmental disabilities in paid employment that is both rewarding to them and valuable to their employers.

Although these were competent, bright people, they lacked any real interest in the job. During the same period, Erin saw a young man with developmental disabilities bagging groceries at the grocery store, and the germ of an idea was born. She asked herself. . . Keep reading now at

Great teachers and great readers with & Real reading progress in K–3


ou don’t have to be in Texas to use TPRI® and Tejas LEE®, two comprehensive systems for helping English- and Spanish-speaking students make real reading progress in K–3. Thousands of schools across the country use these two authentic, research-based systems to help teachers teach and help achieve better reading outcomes. Guiding teachers step-by-step through diagnostic assessment, targeted intervention, and effective progress monitoring, TPRI® and Tejas LEE® solve key challenges for everyone: TEACHERS are empowered with everything they need to link assessment data with targeted interventions and solve their students’ reading problems.

STUDENTS who may be at risk for reading failure get individualized help before problems escalate. Assessment is quick and engaging, and intervention activities help students master reading skills they’ll need to excel in every subject.

SCHOOLS get a detailed overview on every student and classroom, so they’ll have the accurate data they need to make critical decisions about instruction and professional development.

LEARN MORE at the Brookes site: Get your FREE 16-page sample and much more information on both systems, including a Q&A on the Top 10 Things Administrators Are Asking, and handy “What Do I Need?” charts.

How do TPRI® and Tejas LEE® improve outcomes? DIAGNOSE



Teachers pinpoint students’ strengths and weaknesses with in-depth, efficient assessment of skills in key areas.

Each system has an Intervention Activities Guide with hundreds of step-bystep, ready-to-use activities, so it’s easy for teachers to link assessment with differentiated instruction.

With the brief, effective progress monitoring kits, teachers will check student progress in just a few minutes, so they’ll know where students need extra support.

Tejas LEE® is an authentic Spanish assessment, not a translation of TPRI®. The two systems were developed by separate teams of experts and piloted on different populations of students—so you can be confident they’re effectively meeting your students’ needs.
