Focusing on Early Childhood
This day is a partnership with Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI), CESA #1, and Supporting Neurodiverse Students
Registration is open!
Please join us as we explore the layers of collaboration it takes to support children of early childhood age.
Circles from the Start: Inclusive Early Care and Education
This interactive session is a must for any early educator who wants to learn more about creating inclusive programs and classrooms. During this keynote session, you’ll learn alongside two of the most sought after experts in the field of Inclusive Early Education, Dr. Kristie Pretti-Frontczak and Dr. Julie Causton. The session will be filled with practical ideas and strategies, as well as tips and tools that you can use right away. You’ll receive tons of ideas for differentiating lessons and activities, embedding specially designed instruction, and providing “just right supports”. You will also receive many practical ideas for supporting students who demonstrate challenging behaviors. Lastly, you’ll learn how to shift the mindsets, heartsets, and skillsets of early educators, families, and community members to be ready to inclusively support all young children. Let’s come together to make circles from the start! Learn more at https://www.inclusiveschooling.com/
Collaboration and Coordination
During this session, Jenny Bibler and Eva Shaw, Wisconsin DPI special education consultants, will answer questions regarding the Department of Public Instruction and Department of Health Services Joint Guidance For Behavioral Treatment for School-Age Youth, with an emphasis on its implication for early childhood. Questions for this session will be collected beforehand using the survey Collaboration and Coordination: Families, Schools, Behavioral Treatment Providers.
Panel of Collaboration
In this panel, participants will be introduced to speakers with experience working together across organizations. From community organizations, schools and families we work together to provide opportunities for people on the spectrum and with other developmental disabilities. This effort has one goal, to provide what we can so the person we support can be the best them they can be. This takes working together and keeping the child at the center of the conversation, if not the lead to that conversation. Come join us to learn about the success and barriers our panelists have faced in making this collaboration work.
