Training and Consultation Initiatives

Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) requires continued training and consultation to assure that all personnel necessary to carry out the purposes of the act are appropriately and adequately trained. Training and Consultation (TaC) consultants provide training and technical assistance to school districts and public charter schools.. The following initiatives are part of the Intermediate Unit 1 School Age Special Education Plan:
  • Provide training in Pennsylvania Department of Education initiatives at the local school level in accordance with Pennsylvania’s State Performance Goals for Students with Disabilities
  • Develop and disseminate information on Pennsylvania Department of Education Programs
  • Assist local school districts in developing training activities and specific support services for including students with disabilities in regular education classrooms
