When you’re combing through the aisles of any major education conference like FETC or ISTE, you begin to notice lots of new and shiny platforms. There’s assessment platforms, learning management systems, student information systems, grading systems, e-learning curriculum platforms and more. But if you’re a special education professional you know that those tools often hinder, not help, when you’re working with your students.

Special education professionals including educators, paraprofessionals, behaviorists, and speech and occupational therapists are working with students that are often on IEP’s (individual education plans) that means that whether they are teaching 5 students a day or 40 each one of them is on a different plan, it’s like a new class for each and every student and organizing all of that information can be cumbersome.

Special education teachers and professionals have always been great hackers. They’ve been able to hack together systems that work for them. They could range from individual binders for each student, Google doc folders for each student, heck we’ve even come across Special Education teachers that use post it notes in different colors. Until now there hasn’t been a technology platform designed specifically for Special Education.

LiftEd is a single comprehensive system designed for special education and it’s many intricacies including:

  • Progressive instruction
  • Team Collaboration
  • Transparency about outcomes

LiftEd is a mobile solution for tracking and reporting progress and eases the headache of manually tracking progress and puts the focus back on instruction. Some of the features of LiftEd include:

  • Measure academic and behavioral goals with or without wifi
  • Analyze learning trends in real time to identify success or failure and exactly when they occur
  • Remotely access data, guide instruction in absence
  • Share progress with others
