Domino Faculty and Staff
With the reauthorization of I.D.E.A in 2004, Congress found that the education of children with disabilities can be made more effective if all school personnel receive "high quality, intensive" professional development and training to ensure they have "the skills and knowledge necessary to improve the academic achievement and functional performance of children with disabilities... including the use of scientifically based instructional practices, to the maximum extent possible." Section 1400(c)(5)(E)
