About this learning opportunity

A review of the strategies used in structured TEACCHING; as presented in my previous sessions.  I will briefly review the main components and provide specific instruction and examples of how you can make the “system” work for students at a variety of developmental levels. What does this look like for an early learner? How do you implement these strategies in inclusion? Can you use these same strategies for our higher-functioning students? A question and answer time will be available after. 

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
