High Leverage Practices to Promote Inclusion


Data from the National Center for Education Statistics indicate that 62% of all students identified with a disability are educated in the general education setting for 80% or more of the school day.  The High Leverage Practices to Promote Inclusion Graduate Certificate responds to this critical and growing need for teachers to have appropriate support for serving all students in their classrooms, including students with disabilities, at risk students, and typical learners.


In the Graduate Certificate in High Leverage Practices to Promote Inclusion program, you will learn the practical tools to implement instructional changes that promote diversity and foster inclusivity in your classroom and within the school culture.  You will join students from a variety of backgrounds and fields and participate in active learning experiences using evidence-based inclusive practices for students.  You will learn about high leverage practices (HLPs) that are critical to helping students learn and for supporting students’ social and emotional development.  Field-based experiences are threaded throughout the program and candidates receive first-hand opportunities to translate research and theory into practice.


Certificate program objectives:

  • Students will understand current issues and challenges relating to effective learning interventions,
  • Students will apply the latest research in educational intervention,
  • Students will promote positive learning and inclusive education,
