Early Childhood PBIS

This one day training provides participants with information on positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) for pre-k classrooms and programs using the Pyramid Model as the foundation for the training. The session begins with background information on challenging behaviors which then sets the stage for the main content of the training – building relationships and high quality pre-k classroom best practices. Some of the areas of best practice included in the training are classroom arrangement, classroom design, learning centers, schedules, transitions, large and small groups, and giving directions. The session ends with guidance on developing expectations and rules for classrooms/programs. Attendees will review case studies and participate in hands-on activities to “practice” learned content. Opportunities will be provided to reflect on one’s own practices. No prerequisites are required for this training.

REACH MS – Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Training & Technical Assistant Cohorts

Multi-Tiered System of Supports - Universal Design for Learning

UDL 101 Training

This training will introduce participants to Universal Design during four days of training spread out over the school year.  The initial day of training will provide:

  • Knowledge of the theory and research basis of UDL
  • Information on turning novice learners into expert learners
  • Strategies for designing curriculum aligned to educational standards for varied learners which support engagement and achievement.
  • Methods for using new technologies to make curriculum more effective.

Subsequent sessions will thoroughly explore the three UDL Principles:

  • Day Two: Providing Multiple Means of Engagement by providing options for recruiting interest, sustaining effort/persistence, and self-regulation.
  • Day Three: Providing Multiple Means of Representation by providing options for perception, language, mathematical expressions, symbols, and comprehension.
  • Day Four: Providing Multiple Means of Action and Expression by providing options for physical action, expression/communication and in managing oneself/one’s resources in order to achieve a goal (executive function).
