Target Audience: Seminole county General Education & Exceptional Student Education teachers, grades K-12 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all students that enables educators to amplify the instructional experience and plan for variability to teach and reach all learners. 

Participants will learn the three essential components for implementing UDL in their classroom: 
(1) There are clear goals.
(2) Variability is expected.
(3) The context is proactively planned and designed to address this variability. 

UDL Now, by Katie Novak will be provided to all participants. 
Other resources will be shared aimed at assisting participants in applying the UDL Principles by providing learners with:
(1) Multiple means of Engagement (the “why” of learning)
(2) Multiple means of Representation (the “what” of learning)
(3) Multiple means of Action and Expression (the “how” of learning)

Teams review early stage, Tier 1 strategies before exploring more resource intensive Tier 2 and Tier 3 interventions. Through the use of a collaborative problem solving process, school teams use data to determine the function of the misbehavior to develop targeted highly structured interventions. Teams will also learn and experience an efficient 25-minute meeting plan designed to facilitate efficient school-based meetings. Participants will receive a copy of Safe and Civil School's Interventions book. To learn more about evidence of effectiveness please visit www.safeandcivilschools.com More

This session is for Seminole County educators. The Picture Exchange Communication System (PECS) is a language-training package that is used to teach communication skills rapidly to those with limited functional speech. PECS promotes communication within a social context, without lengthy prerequisite training. Training in PECS begins by teaching a spontaneous request and goes on to teach additional communicative functions such as responding to questions and commenting. An added attraction for preschool children with autism and related disabilities is the high proportion of children who acquire independent speech. Participants will learn how to implement the six Phases of PECS, including attributes, through presenter demonstrations, video examples and role-play opportunities. Participants will leave the workshop with an understanding of how to implement PECS with individuals with autism, related developmental disabilities, and/or limited communication skills. A follow-up implementation survey will be sent four weeks after the course ends. The survey will close two weeks later, after which inservice points will be sent in. More
