    The IRL is your gateway to our modules, case study units, activities, and so much more. From accommodations to transition and everything in between, the IRL lets you tailor your search by topic area, resource type, media element, or age group and grade level.

  • Professional Development

    Love our free resources but need PD hours? IRIS has you covered. For a nominal fee, IRIS offers a trio of PD options.
