Videos resources were captured at the 2013 Professional Learning Institute: The Power of Strategic Implementation – Narrow the Gap.
DSE/EIS, in cooperation with the Center for Technology in Education at the Johns Hopkins University, has developed the Maryland Special Education and Early Intervention Longitudinal Accountability Decision Support System (LADSS).
Maryland was recently awarded the opportunity to become one of four sites in the nation to participate in the School Wide Integrated Framework for Transformation (SWIFT) project. SWIFT is a national K-8 technical assistance center committed to eliminating silos in education by bridging general and specialized education through academic and behavioral supports, creating powerful learning opportunities for all students and teachers, and promoting active, engaged partnerships among families and community members.

Effective strategies for working with children who have deaf-blindness
The Braille Sense U2 is a communication system device for deaf-blind users and features vibratory feedback, integrated connectivity with common-audio amplifications systems, and a built-in brailler.
DSE/EIS Action and why it is important
Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports at its core, is a process for creating school-wide environments that promote positive behavior and reduce negative behavior. And many school systems are now using PBIS with great results.
Accessible Educational Materials (AEM) are developed or adapted in a variety of formats (print, digital, graphical, Braille, audio or video) to enable all students the same opportunity to learn the equivalent information and engage in the same interactions at the same time.
