About this Learning Opportunity

In the first of the series, your hosts Charlie Kraig and April Prescott will review their “Inclusion Basics” which are the Tier 1 interventions to use before a specialist arrives. In this session, participants will leave with an improved understanding of inclusion and strategies they can implement to improve results for their students. They will also have an introduction to what specialists and therapists will expect to see already happening in their classrooms. The result will be a more efficient visit with consultants and kids receiving interventions right away! The rest of the series will feature specialists in their field providing recommendations for teachers across the grade levels.
