Finding and keeping the best: A rural regional partnership for recruiting and retaining teachers for children with low incidence disabilities  

The project will train 64 college graduates to receive California Education Specialist certification in moderate to severe disabilities. The project will focus on addressing the needs of children with low incidence disabilities, including autism, significant cognitive impairments, multiple disabilities, orthopedic impairments, and simultaneous vision and hearing impairments. The project will prepare participants for teaching certification through: (a) release day seminars; (b) interactive online instruction; (c) regional training sites; and (d) intensive summer sessions. The project aims to ensure teacher retention by providing a support network beginning in the recruitment phase and early field experiences, continuing through the on-the-job training period, and extending five years beyond certification.
