PD – Universal learning design
Through comprehensive workshops, we provide educators with guidelines to help them set up classrooms, and develop curricula, lesson plans and materials that work for the widest variance range.
All a learning disability diagnosis can tell us is that a student with average to above average intelligence is having academic difficulties. It does not provide us with enough information to understand how to best support the student.
A unique learning profile (ULP) identifies the specific academic skills that need to be supported, including sensory input and motor output (taking in and putting out information), cognitive abilities (how the student learns) and social emotional status (how the student feels towards themselves and school). All parts of the learning profile need to be considered to inform the necessary interventions.
In this workshop, you’ll learn to develop ULPs through psycho-educational assessment data, IEPs and curriculum baseline measure assessment data. You’ll go step by step through the ULP-building process, and learn how to use it to identify appropriate interventions for students.
PD – In-classroom differentiation
This set of in-depth workshops teaches educators how to recognize and identify variances in specific students, and then how to adapt content and complexity levels on the spot.
Differentiation is a technique that provides teachers with an understanding of how to meet students where they are through tasks, flexible group creation and alternative assessment methods.
This workshop focuses on the underlying theories to different gene instructions, and provides hands-on techniques and strategies that you can implement tomorrow in your classroom.
