Sibling's Blended Schools Network Division Offers Special Education Professional Development for All Educators

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - Sep 24, 2014) - Sibling Group Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: SIBE), (www.siblinggroup.com) (the "Company"), an educational technology holding company, announced today that it is offering its Special Education Courses on the Blended Schools Network ("BSN") division's teacher professional development platform. Educators are responsible for the learning of all students in their classrooms, but many are desperate for the resources and skills they need to be effective with special education students.

The number of U.S. students enrolled in special education programs has risen 30 percent over the past 10 years according to the National Education Association. Three out of every four students with disabilities spend part or all of their school day in a general education classroom. In turn, nearly every general education classroom across the country includes students with disabilities.

Blended Schools Network is offering new courses perfect for any K12 educator working in an inclusive classroom. Each lesson builds skills and provides resources teachers can apply in their classrooms the next day. In the courses, teachers learn about Individualized Education Plans, differentiation, paraprofessional potential, data collection, and instructional strategies. This meets a critical need that all teachers have to create success for all students.

This is Blended Schools' first professional development offering not specifically focused on blended and online learning. The courses were developed by Dr. Pam Danklefsen who has extensive experience both inside and beyond the classroom working with special needs students, as well as creating professional development to help teachers succeed. Dr. Danklefsen's direct knowledge of what works in the classroom and extensive experience with developing programming for children with disabilities has created rich and engaging content to help teachers create successful inclusion classrooms.

"We're very pleased to offer educators this tremendous platform via Blended Schools Network, which currently has over 5,000 teachers visiting the site each day. Bringing our PLC products to this vibrant teaching community allows us to reach so many more teachers," stated Maurine Findley, CEO of Sibling Group Holdings. 

The courses are designed for all educators and the first courses will start October 6, 2014. Educators can enroll through the Blended Schools website at http://blendedschools.net/professional-development/special-education-for-all-educators
