For Families: Supporting Virtual Instruction
10/27/2020 9:00-10:30am (PST)
Unexpected school closures and the sudden shift to virtual instruction has caused stress, frustration, uncertainty, and fatigue for many families. Virtual instruction comes with its own set of challenges, but there are useful strategies that can reduce tension and help maintain the connection between home and school. This webinar will provide families with methods for setting up schedules and routines for supporting distance and hybrid learning. We will go beyond just creating a calendar, by identifying specific ways to make schedules more rewarding and providing ideas to unwind and return to more normal home routines once the school day is complete. Participants will leave with strategies and resources they can use to set up a behaviorally-based learning environment at home.

The field of special education has historically been heavily influenced by the law and most professionals routinely keep abreast of legal updates; however, COVID-19 is challenging even the most legal savvy professional. Updates, changes, and new case law are emerging almost weekly, and it is becoming increasingly difficult to balance the requirements of the law while continuing to practice ethically. During this session participants will be provided with an overview of current relevant case law and an opportunity for brief discussion and Q&A.
For Families with Young Children: Positively Addressing Behavior at Home

Parenting young children often seems like the hardest and most exhausting task in the world. Developmentally, children start to test boundaries, explore friendships, and develop independence during the preschool years. It is sometimes difficult to know how to establish boundaries yet still foster independence, emotional maturity, and personality. During this session, caregivers will be provided with strategies to help reduce emotional meltdowns and power struggles and promote independence and problem-solving.
