New Low Incidence Disabilities (LID) Teacher Summer Bootcamp!

Are you new to the LID classroom? Whether it's your first-year teaching ever or just your first time in the LID setting, this boot camp is designed especially for you!

Low Incidence Disability (LID) programs are known by various names such as Life Skills, Functional Living Unit, Adaptive Learning Environment (ALE), etc., but we all share the common goal of providing safe, engaging, and effective practices for students with significant cognitive disabilities.

In this boot camp, you'll discover the best practices necessary to create and implement an organized, effective, and enjoyable learning environment for you and your students. Topics covered will include classroom setup and organization, strategies for communication and behavior management, grade-level TEKS curriculum, development of Standards-Based Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), STAAR Alternate 2, year-long planning, grading, and assuming the role of instructional leader in the classroom.

Participants will also engage in hands-on activities and leave with a toolbox of materials to kickstart their classroom programs! July 29-31, Session #102884, Register now!

The Station Rotation Model (AM)
It's impossible to meet the needs of diverse learners if you move lockstep through curriculum and activities as a whole class. Explore how the Station Rotation Model can help you create more opportunities to work directly with small groups of students, individualize scaffolding and support, differentiate instruction, move feedback into the classroom, and allow students to control the pace of their learning.

Taking the Station Rotation to the Next Level (PM)
This workshop builds on a basic understanding of the purpose, benefits, and design of the station rotation model. It focuses on the role of data in designing and facilitating learning experiences that are accessible, inclusive, and equitable. Participants will explore and apply strategies for collecting pre-assessment data to understand where students are beginning in relation to concepts and skills.
