This presentation will describe student learning profiles that were developed to clarify student gains and assist in planning further instruction during a multi-year professional development project. The project supported educators in their efforts to provide comprehensive literacy instruction to their students with significant disabilities across educational settings. Learning profiles could be used as a framework to: share information gathered during interdisciplinary assessment; share information about daily performance in lessons; plan for prioritizing instruction and future goals; and, provide a dialogue for continued interdisciplinary collaboration. This targeted collaboration encourages shared leadership, fostering a more effective inclusive educational experience for students. OBJECTIVES: 1. discuss how learning profiles can encourage ongoing collaboration among interdisciplinary team members; 2. discuss how learning profiles can support instructional decision making as it pertains to literacy; 3. describe how learning profiles can be utilized to monitor students? ongoing progress; and, 4. identify two ways learning profiles could result in a more effective inclusive educational experience.
