About this learning opportunity

When creating programs to support ISP goals are you maximizing the student’s time during the day to achieve those goals? Is there a sequence to the student’s day that matches the goals? Join me to explore and understand when to implement meaningful instruction and how to build an instructional matrix for each student; ensuring consistent practices and supports are in place. Educational teams would benefit from using this approach to evaluate current programs and areas in which they themselves need training and support.

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