CEU's for this event are no longer available.  However, we appreciate your feedback via the EVALUATION available at this linkhttps://vte.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_07WuC9tz2lK6VTv

Young children with disabilities have better outcomes when their families and caregivers receive the necessary resources and supports to implement high quality practices. This session will set the framework for how adults learn and how they can learn to implement new practices and modify current ones to have the greatest impact on young children.

In this 90 minute interactive webinar session participants will:

  1. Discover a systematic way to develop and present new information to effect change in practice, whether in “coaching” sessions with families or professional development sessions with colleagues.
  2. Learn how to implement new practices or modify current practices to meet the needs of military families facing unique circumstances such as deployment, relocations, and post-combat challenges.
  3. Gain adult learning tools and resources, which they can apply to their work with families and colleagues.
And don't miss our follow-up event, Lunch & Learn:  Principles of Adult Learning In Action, where we will hear your thoughts, opinions, and experiences related to the Key Points Carol Trivette, PhD will share during the webinar on March 17!  Click here to learn more about this great opportunity for engagement in an online setting.
