CLOSED Session I: Connecting with Kids During a Time of Disconnect (March 1)
REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED FOR THIS SESSION
The need for connection and community is primal, as fundamental as the need for air, water, and food. Dean Ornish’s quote reminds us that we are prewired to seek connection. But whether reflecting on a time of intermittent virtual instruction or dealing with the ever-present distraction of social media, we can feel even more isolated. The need to connect with others, and especially our students, has become more critical than ever. In this session, attendees will learn practical strategies to build meaningful relationships with students and colleagues and create a connection to the campus for all stakeholders.
March 1, 2022 • 6:30 pm ET / 5:30 pm CT / 4:30 pm MT / 3:30 pm PT (session lasts one hour)

Early-Stage Interventions. When students have been away from the traditional classroom setting for an extended period of time, we may see an increased need for simple, teacher-friendly, evidence-based interventions.
Designing Tier 2 and 3 Behavior Support Systems. Many students will need targeted and/or intensive individualized interventions for more complex and persistent behavior problems exacerbated by the long break and the difficulties that all families are facing. Learn how to develop Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions for students most at risk for academic and behavioral failure.
