Found this information in Elisabeth's backpack and thought it looked interesting for families who have children who are not cognition-track students. (I guess that means kids who are severe or delayed in cognition development...)
Starting Dec. 11, 2008, State Support Team 13, in collaboration with regional trainers, will offer interactive, hands-on, sessions related to Special Education System topic. Family members may attend all or any of the sessions. A $20 gift card, to help defray expenses, willbe provided to parents and family members at each session (one card per family.)
Sessions will be held at CRES (former SERRC building) from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. the 2nd Thursday of each month, December through May. The sessions will cover basic informaiton about topics related to the needs of learners with disabilities, including an intervention/prevention model fo learners who are not successful in school, adademically or behaviorially. Ohio's new operation standardss will be applied to each topic area.
Those who attend all six series sessions willb e invted to attend more advanced, in-depth, training at a Spring Leadership Institute in May and June of 2009.
