Your Calling: To Meet Each Student Where They Are

As a K-12 educator, you understand that every child, every class, and every lesson is NOT one-size-fits-all. So, how do you ensure the success of your students when they have differing strengths and needs? You elevate your ability in all facets of education.

Learn to identify, engage, and assess learning disabilities more effectively. Explore proven methods in instructional practices, classroom management, and behavior development. Fine-tune your talents with practical approaches to hands-on topics like reading instruction.

And, if you currently hold a South Carolina teaching license, these certificate courses can be submitted to the state department to pursue add-on licensure in Learning Disabilities. For more information, visit the South Carolina Department of Education.
