Project TLC is a federally funded teacher preparation grant that aims to prepare elementary general teachers as master level special educators with an emphasis on supporting students with intellectual disabilities including Autism (SIDIA) in the inclusive classroom. Scholars engage in coursework, leadership training, mentoring/coaching as they gain skills and dispositions of Teacher researchers, Leaders, and Collaborators. Project TLC is unique in its approach to developing future master level teachers. Rather than preparing teachers as ?special educators?, general educators gain the unique skills needed to support students with complex support needs within the inclusive general education elementary classroom. OBJECTIVES: At the end of presentation, participants will be able to a) identify potential teacher preparation needs in order to prepare all teachers to support all students within the inclusive classroom, b) identify strategies and activities that are used to assist general educators to become Teacher researcher, school Leaders, and Collaborators, and c) analyze their own teacher preparation programs to support the education on all children in classrooms, including those with SIDIA.
