An important component of distance learning is the school staff’s relationship with a student‘s caregiver (parent, sibling, personal care attendant, etc.). A family-centered practice model may be beneficial to increase engagement, meet current objectives, build generalization of skills, and increase the family’s awareness of the student’s strengths. Engaging in collaborative best practices among caregivers, related- service providers and teachers is essential for successful distance learning.
Through case studies and published resources, this webinar will present evidence-based practices addressing how to maximize learning opportunities for students and their caregivers during distance learning. The first section will present adult learning models and family-centered practice approaches, such as coaching, to help students engage in distance learning. The second section will present examples from specialized instructional support providers (SISPs) working collaboratively with English language learners during distance learning.
This webinar would be ideal for any SISPs who are providing services to students via distance learning and looking forward to collaborating in the future.
Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.
On Demand version is available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.
