OSEP Webinar: Highlighting Resources and Practices to Support Back to School and Continuity of Learning During COVID-19 for Children with Disabilities

The Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP) is hosting a Webinar Highlighting Resources and Practices to Support Back to School and Continuity of Learning During COVID-19 for Children with Disabilities. Register for the event.

OSEP is hosting the third and final installment of its webinar series on Continuity of Learning during COVID-19 on August 4, 2020 from 2:00–3:30 PM ET. This series has showcased ready-to-use resources, tools, and practices from OSEP partners to support the educational, developmental, behavioral, and social/emotional needs of infants, toddlers, children, and youth with disabilities through remote and distance learning.

This third webinar in the series will present strategies and considerations for conducting instruction in remote, on-site, and hybrid educational settings this fall. Specifically, this webinar will highlight exemplar resources and practices for teachers, leaders, other providers, and families to support students with disabilities from Preschool–Grade 12.

Presentations will include demonstrations about incorporating data-driven instruction from the National Center on Intensive Intervention (NCII), guidance about State support for LEAs and State Personnel Development Grants (SPDGs), and the use of high-leverage practices from the CEEDAR Center and others. In addition, Glenna Gallo, Carolyn Hayer, and George Sugai will participate on a panel with OSEP Director Laurie VanderPloeg to discuss the challenges and considerations of Back to School in 2020. To register for this event and hear about resources and strategies to help you get back to school, please visit Registration: Resources and Practices to Support Back to School and Continuity of Learning.
