Come and learn about high-quality inclusive education today. In this three-day training, best practices and related research will be shared alongside useful resources and easy-to implement classroom ideas. These sessions are intended to provide support to professionals who will, in turn, be able to educate both students with disabilities and their teachers. This workshop provides the foundation for those that follow. Topics include foundations of inclusive schools, best practices, inclusive schooling models, etc. SESSIONS 2 & 3 key strategies Over these two sessions, participants will learn strategies that are critical to the success of learners with disabilities (e.g. active learning, video modeling/visuals, use of communication supports, “radical” role sharing & paraprofessional collaboration). It is strongly recommended that schools/districts attend in teams with ideally an administrator or coach from your district or school. The material is geared toward elementary and middle school educators and administrators. Others are absolutely welcome to participate, but these individuals should keep in mind that most of the examples that will be provided will feature students in K-8 settings.
