Course Description

As instructional leaders, the teachers we serve need more than conceptual knowledge of SDI—they need methods to assist them in planning and assessing the impact of the specialized strategies they are utilizing daily.  This book study is an effort to streamline the connection between IEP Goals and instructional planning in a way that impacts how we coach and train special education teachers and paraprofessionals. 

Author Anne M. Beninghof provides practical insight on how to plan and implement specially designed instruction for our most vulnerable populations in her book “Specially Designed Instruction: Increasing Success for Students with Disabilities”. 

Participants in this book study will participate in facilitated dialogue amongst peers and develop action plans to equip teachers in the 2022-2023 school year.  Please purchase the book and read the entirety of the text prior to the virtual gathering.  This book study is intended for school administration, instructional coaches, special education leaders that are currently working within Metro Atlanta Schools.  A minimum of 10 participants will be required for the course to be held. 

Participants must bring:

Laptop with working camera and microphone

Metro RESA makes every effort to provide high quality professional learning experiences at low costs to teachers in the Metro Atlanta area. Because we often have to pay instructors, rental fees for locations, and for materials, we must make decisions at least two weeks in advance about cancellation of classes when we do not have enough registrants.

Therefore, our cancellation/no show policy is as follows:

  • If you choose PERSONAL PAY as your payment method: You must use a credit card to complete your registration for all classes with Metro RESA.  We will happily issue a refund for any class as long as you notify us that you need to cancel AT LEAST TWO WEEKS PRIOR TO THE DATE OF THE CLASS.  You will be refunded via the same method of payment within two business weeks.
  • If you choose SCHOOL PAY as your payment method: Your school will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.  
  • If you choose DISTRICT PAY as your payment method: Your district will be notified of all no-shows and invoiced for no-shows and/or cancellations made less than two weeks prior to class.


Refunds and reimbursements are not transferable to other classes. Refunds for cancellations (if the participant cancels at least two weeks prior to class OR if Metro RESA cancels the class) will be processed within two business weeks of the date of the course.
