This full day training focuses on increasing educator knowledge about federal requirements and options for participation in statewide assessments through the lens of ensuring that students with disabilities are able to meaningfully participate in the assessments required under ESSA. Teachers will learn how to ensure that students have appropriate accessibility supports and accommodations and that those supports are selected systematically, based on student need. Participants will explore the use of interim and formative resources available for statewide assessments, such as the Smarter Balanced interim assessments and how to support students in accessing grade level content via use of balanced assessment system resources and tools. Participants will learn more about the rigor of the Smarter Balance test and how to familiarize students with the testing platform. Participants should bring a laptop or device that can be used to access IEPs. Participants will be provided work time during the training to apply what we are learning with the students on their caseload.

Presentation Description CSPD October 2019
A thorough presentation of positive behavioral interventions in a variety of environments will be presented to conference attendees. Discussion will center around types of behaviors; task avoidance, escape motivated, attention seeking, behaviors that produce sensory consequences, and the role motivation plays in behavioral success in many settings-school, home, and community. Children with a variety of differences will be thoroughly discussed. The paraprofessional audience will be able to apply the information presented through videos, activities, and examples of how to set up positive plans for the children in a variety of environmental settings immediately in their respective situations. The training will also contain discussions about setting limits that work and the application of positive interventions. We will examine the common pitfalls that sabotage behavioral intervention plans and what to avoid when wanting to make significant behavioral changes. Further discussions of how to implement 504 accommodations in a regular education setting will be detailed.
Throughout the presentation, the attendees will receive a vast amount of information on what seems to work best for the children and adolescents with the various disabilities, and how to set up positive behavioral supports and interventions for the individuals they are serving.
Learning Objectives: After attending this session, participants will
1. Identify why difficult behaviors are occurring, and what to do to change the inappropriate behaviors.
2. Gain knowledge about working with people with emotional and behavioral disabilities using positive behavioral interventions. Discussions about what strategies can be most effectively utilized with which types of disabilities.
