The Journal of Case Learning and Exceptional Learners (JCLEL) is an open-access, double-blind, peer-reviewed online journal that publishes case studies, case study learning research, and resources. JCLEL focuses on students with intellectual and developmental disabilities and extensive support needs. In this article, we discuss how these unique case studies can be used in special education teacher preparation and why authors should consider publishing with JCLEL. Information about how to write case studies that can be used for educational purposes and that adhere to the case study frameworks will be provided. The authors also present a general overview of the journal, its purpose, and a checklist that can be used for submission.
