Free Resource Friday took a break last week, but we’re back!

Who doesn’t like a good training module? The IRIS Center, a federally-funded center that serves as a resource for university professors who train special education teachers, has quite a few for your viewing pleasure.

The modules cover several topics in special education, including assistive technology, differentiated instruction and transition. The intended audience of professors, teachers and professional development providers definitely affects the focus of these modules; I’m not sure parents would find this all that interesting.

However, there’s so much special education information scattered all over the web that it is useful to have a place like the IRIS Center, where several topics are housed under one roof.
