Participants will learn strategies for working with students who have significant behavioral needs. Topics will include preventative techniques and specific interventions for individual students, as well as systemic changes that can support these efforts. Early behavior intervention is the key to ensuring a lifetime of success!
Structured tasks can help students focus on specific skills and support them at different levels of learning. Completing tasks independently builds confidence and fluency. This presentation will be full of ideas for tasks that promote reading skills from phonemic awareness to comprehension of passages. Participants will be provided access to tasks they can print and use right away. They will take away ideas that they can adapt and apply to the needs of their students.
Join this session to connect with a Transition and Vocational Rehabilitation Counselor from Texas Workforce Solutions. This is the first step in creating a partnership that leads to student success. You will learn how to help students get connected with Texas Workforce for employment, college, and so much more!
