TeleSPED - Special Education Development

The TeleSPED ECHO is a partnership of CCOSA, OSU Center for Health Sciences Project ECHO and OSU-Tulsa. This ECHO is uniquely designed to provide an appropriate and accessible means of support and professional development for Oklahoma administrators, educators, related service providers, as well as students that share educational responsibilities for students with disabilities.


Schedule -

We are back Monday, September 12th from 12-1 PM, and biweekly each 2nd and 4th Monday each month during the 2022-2023 Academic school year.A one time registration is required to join the session.





  • Studies indicate that 95% of students with disabilities are educated in general education classrooms for at least some portion of their school day and that 57% receive instruction and support in the general education classroom for most of the school day
  • Oklahoma has over 510 school districts, with at least 55% being considered “rural”, and it is imperative that educational leaders promote practices to support the professional development of Oklahoma educators.
  • A recent Schools and Staffing Survey indicated that nearly two-thirds of the public school teachers surveyed reported that they had not received professional development during the previous year focused on how to teach students with disabilities.
