WTF-What's the Function?

Behavior is communication, it happens for a reason and it has a function (WHY the behavior is happening and WHAT is the child receiving from it). We will use real-life scenarios and collaborate as a group to learn how to identify the function of problem behaviors. We will discuss how to match appropriate evidence-based interventions to the function to increase desired behaviors.

What Every Teacher Needs to Know about the Science of Reading (Hour 2 of 2)

Reading is not hard-wired in the human brain, yet with recent advances in neuroscience, we understand, better than ever, the science of how humans learn to read. When educators understand this science, they can become more effective reading teachers. This session will briefly review how humans process and store information when learning to read and how this translates to best practices in the classroom. In addition, participants will leave with a collection of effective strategies for teaching phonics, "sight" words, vocabulary, and comprehension.
