Are you delivering comprehensive literacy instruction to your students with significant disabilities but not sure if you are doing it with fidelity? Have questions? Need clarification? Want to deepen your skills? If you answered “yes” to any of these, join us for four after-school learning sessions. Participants engage in a one-hour webinar with Dr. Karen Erickson, during which you will interact virtually to problem solve, have your questions answered, receive feedback, implementation support, and dig deeper into comprehensive literacy instruction! Each session will have a focus area related to literacy instruction, including resources.


New this year: In addition to the after school sessions, participants will also have the opportunity to visit and/or host Classroom Learning Labs throughout the school year (dates TBD). Learning Labs take place during the school day and are designed to facilitate learning and to deepen your instructional practices through connecting, sharing, reflecting and observing in a safe and supportive environment.


The after school sessions take place from 4 - 7 p.m. and include dinner. SCECH's and Stipends will be offered. Learning Lab dates will be discussed on day one.
