Abstract: This brief paper will demonstrate and explain the components and value of the Bilingual Special Education Website which has been developed to showcase resources for teachers of culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students with disabilities. This website has been developed as part of several federally funded grant programs to prepare teachers to serve Culturally Linguistically Diverse Exceptional (CLDE ) students especially those in rural and remote areas. The website is a valuable resource for teachers, because it connects them with many resources and culturally relevant sample lesson plans which they can use as models to develop their own lessons in their own communities. Samples of the lesson plans, Training of Trainers Powerpoints, and other resources will be demonstrated during the presentation.
