December | Professional Development, One Hour At A Time — SDEA Fall Webinar Series


Being an educator is probably as challenging as it has ever been.  SDEA is grateful for your commitment to students and the profession, and we want to help make your year a little easier.  So, between October 5 and December 7, SDEA is offering a series of 10 webinars based on topic interest cards returned by members and potential members. 

Sign up for one, three, or all ten webinars.  You choose the dates and topics that work for you. All webinars are on Tuesdays beginning at 5:15 pm CST/4:15 MT and run for an hour each.  Most sessions are worth a one hour continuing education unit (CEU) toward recertification.  Register today at

December 7      Become Your Own Special Education Advocate                 

Special Education issues have become the business of all educators, but training for mainstream classroom teachers and paras has often not kept pace with the need for information.  Educators need to know not only how to advocate for and act in the best interests of all students, but also for themselves.  SDEA Teaching and Learning Coordinator Rich Mittelstedt discusses federal and state law regarding referrals, placement, IEPs, behavior, restraint, and advocacy.    REGISTER
