Iris Center

Supported by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs and located at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, the IRIS Center develops and disseminates free, engaging online resources about evidence-based instructional and behavioral practices to support the education of all students, particularly struggling learners and those with disabilities.

Soutenu par le Bureau des programmes d’éducation spécialisée du ministère de l’Éducation des États-Unis et situé au Peabody College de l’Université Vanderbilt, le IRIS Center développe et diffuse des ressources en ligne gratuites et attrayantes sur les pratiques pédagogiques et comportementales fondées sur des données probantes pour soutenir l’éducation de tous les élèves, en particulier ceux qui rencontrent des difficultés d’apprentissage et ceux qui souffrent d’un handicap. (en anglais seulement)

These resources, designed to bridge the research-to-practice gap, are intended for use in college teacher preparation programs, in professional development (PD) activities for practicing professionals, and by independent learners. The array of IRIS resources includes modules, case studies, information briefs, course/PD activities, a high-leverage practices alignment tool, and an online glossary of disability-related terms as well as supporting products to enhance their use in coursework and PD activities.

Developed in collaboration with nationally recognized researchers and education experts, our free online resources address instructional and classroom issues of critical importance to today’s educators: classroom behavior management, secondary transition, early childhood, Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and many others.
