About This Website
Where To Start
We encourage you to start with the Disability Categories module and familiarize yourself with each disability category. Also, take time to read the introduction to Special Education Public Policy. Feel free to explore the other modules, supplemental information and resources as you see fit. All this information changes regularly, so pay attention to the module status indicators for each module. See a key of module status indicators for more information.
Each teaching module follows a similar structure and includes Key Concepts, Activities, Presentations, Tests and Media. Explore the Key Concepts or jump into the Activities section to get ideas of how to implement what you learn in your classrooms. Also, as you explore our site, you will see definition tags and if you hover the word, term or acronym with you cursor more information will be provided. We invite you to give us feedback about our site using our Site Feedbackform.
Financial support for Project IDEAL is provided by the Texas Council for Developmental Disabilities, with Federal funds made available by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, Administration on Developmental Disabilities.
