The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is dedicated to improving results for infants, toddlers, children and youth with disabilities ages birth through 21. OSEP, directly and through its partners and grantees, develops a wide range of research-based products, publications, and resources to assist states, local district personnel, and families to improve results for students with disabilities.
This website is designed to provide easy access to information from research to practice initiatives funded by OSEP that address the provisions of IDEA and ESSA. This website will include resources, links, and other important information relevant to OSEP’s research to practice efforts. Please continue to check the website for new information that will be posted as it becomes available.
OSEP hosted a three-part webinar series on Continuity of Learning and Return to School during COVID-19. This series showcased ready-to-use resources, tools, and practices from OSEP partners to support the educational, developmental, behavioral, and social/emotional needs of infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities through remote and distance learning. Please access the Continuity of Learning Webpage where you will find the archived webinars, featured resources, and additional tools and information to help educators, parents and families, and related service providers provide for the needs of students with disabilities during the pandemic.
