    Facilitating Literacy Curricular Reviews   
    In this workshop, educators and leaders will learn more about effective review tools and how to lead literacy review teams/ committees by participating in a sample review. As a result of this experience, participants will be more readily equipped to facilitate meaningful literacy curricular reviews in their own school settings.

    This session is designed to address K-5 curricula. However, educators may find the tools and the process useful up to grade 8 as the tools are aligned to the Core anchor standards for foundational reading skills, reading comprehension (literature and informational), writing as related to reading skills, and some language development skills.

    SY 2022-2023 Coaching Series to Facilitate District Creation of a Plan to Increase Educator Diversity   
    The RESC Alliance is proud to support school districts and organizations as they develop district plans to increase the racial, ethnic, and linguistic diversity of their teacher and leader workforce. Three coaching sessions will be provided during the 2022-2023 school year at Cooperative Educational Services (CES). Each three-hour session will support the district’s utilization of the processes, tools, and resources within the Connecticut State Department of Education’s Guidebook for Hiring and Selection to develop a comprehensive plan to attract, recruit, support, and sustain educators of color.

    Interested school districts are asked to identify teams to participate in this work. Teams should include 3-8 members who are district and/or building level employees involved at any stage of the hiring process. Members can include administrators, human resources and DEI staff, teachers who are part of the interview process, BOE members, community partners, and anyone invested in this work.

    In addition to attending the sessions outlined below, teams should plan to complete approximately 90 minutes of in-district work prior to attending each session. This in-district work will help facilitate teams’ examination of every phase of the selection and hiring processes to root out the potential for bias.

    Selecting the Assessment Tool to Best Fit Student Needs    Selecting the Assessment Tool to Best Fit Student Needs
    Selecting the best fit assessment tool is a crucial step in providing effective and meaningful programming for individuals with ASD and other related developmental disabilities. The assessment process allows practitioners to gather meaningful information regarding the learner’s repertoire across domains such as language/communication skills, social skills, behavior, activities of daily living and many other areas. Results are used as baseline measures, to guide program development and prioritize areas for goal setting. This workshop will focus on identifying the key elements of widely available assessment tools, such as the ABLLS, VB-MAPP, AFLS, FBA and ecological inventories in order to make the best and most appropriate selection when deciding which assessment to conduct.

    TEAM Initial Reviewer Training Winter 2023    Presented by Kasey Dunn
    Successful completion of the TEAM Initial Reviewer Training will enable participants to review TEAM reflection papers and projects to determine if there is sufficient evidence to successfully meet the TEAM module criteria. The training will consist of 3 two-hour facilitated online sessions and pre-work for each session.IMPORTANT REGISTRATION INFORMATION: In order to successfully complete the training, participants must complete all pre-work and session activities in the order of presentation. That means that if participants are unable to complete any of the pre-work or sessions, they will have to finish the training by registering for and attending the missed sessions and completing the pre-work at another training. Therefore, it is important that participants only register for a training where they know that they will be able to attend each of the three sessions and complete the pre-work.

    Building Skills to Achieve Better Outcomes for Students: Utilizing A Behavior Skills Training Approach to Staff and Parent Training   
    Behavior analysts are often required to work with classroom staff, related service staff, and parents of students to teach skills specific to teaching skills or managing behavior of children with disabilities. An approach that has proved effective for this purpose is behavioral skills training. Behavioral skills training is an evidenced based strategy to increase skills related to behavior change interventions. Behavioral skills training utilizes a performance- and competency-based approach in addition to vocal and written instruction. After specific skills are selected for training, specific training procedures are outlined, including providing instruction, modeling performance of desired skills, guided rehearsal with the participant, and the provision of specific feedback about the performance of the skill. This workshop will provide an overview of evidence based practices related to behavioral skills training and discussion of how these practices can be utilized in a public school setting. Participants will work together to develop a sample plan for teaching a skill to a staff member or parent through a behavioral skills training approach.Presented by Dr. Christine Peck2 Learning CEUs will be available for BCBA participants
