Full course description

Welcome to Building a Foundation for Supporting Students with Significant Cognitive Disabilities. This training was developed by the Texas Education Agency's Texas Complex Access Network, or TX CAN.

The purpose of this training is to create a standard of high-quality instruction for students with significant cognitive disabilities across the state of Texas. Delivering high-quality instruction means educators use instructional materials, teaching practices, and learning environments that lead to learner success.  

The needs of students with a significant cognitive disability require specialized adaptations and modifications to traditional educational strategies.  This training series will explore five Quality Indicators of Effective Practices for working with students with significant cognitive disabilities.

The modules and supporting rubric serve as on-going support for teams of educators working with students with significant cognitive disabilities. 

  1. Introduce the five Quality Indicators of Effective Practices for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
  2. Describe and provide tools to support a range of components and strategies that are encompassed in the Quality Indicators of Effective Practices for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
