Professional Development


​“Finding exemplary professional development for teachers who work with students with moderate to severe disabilities can be challenging.  Dr. Donaghy’s workshops and follow up coaching helped our teachers & paras find the links between Common Core Standards, academic content, research based instructional practices and daily lesson plans grounded in functional activities.”
