The Sessions

LIVE 8pm CST Monday May 3rd

Replay on-demand until May 31st

Session One: Inclusive Classrooms - 5 Things Every Teacher MUST Know

The word ‘inclusion’ is used widely, often to represent a range of ideas, models and beliefs. But what does inclusive education - real, true inclusion - actually mean? In this session we’ll be exploring the knowledge, beliefs and actions required to make inclusive education a reality for all students. We’ll also examine common perceived barriers to inclusion for students with Down syndrome and, more importantly, why they’re just not real. A special focus of this session will be creating supports for students who are not at grade level and have different learning objectives than their peers.

On-demand May 4th - 31st

Session Two: Understanding Down Syndrome - Myths, Truths & Possibilities

Are those with Down syndrome really more stubborn than their peers without disabilities? Does Down syndrome limit learning? Does inclusion work best for students with Down syndrome in the early years? If you are in need of the answers to these questions, join us for this session on myths and truths. We will explore the big misconceptions about Down syndrome in this webinar (including one that is pervasive in both schools and families), correct those misconceptions, and share strategies and supports related to each.

On-demand 4th - 31st May

Session Three: Understanding Down Syndrome - 15+ Classroom Supports for Inclusive Classrooms

Need a social skill slam book? How about a stackable food web, a story kit, a purposeful fidget or an alternative pencil? If you teach in an inclusive classroom, the answer is - without a doubt - yes! This webinar will focus on practical supports that can be used for students with disabilities in inclusive classrooms. In this session, we will highlight common struggles and needs of learners with Down syndrome (e.g., communication challenges, memory issues, movement differences) and outline practical solutions for each area of need. These ideas will help educators adapt and teach grade-level standards and provide inspiration for reaching all learners in the diverse classroom.

On-demand May 4th - 31st

Session Four: Supporting Student Behavior - Powerful Strategies to Maximize Engagement

Supporting student behavior can make up SO much of your day - we get it. What if you had a better understanding of why your student with Down syndrome engages in the behaviors you find challenging? In this session we’ll be examining the most common behavior challenges shared by educators supporting students with Down syndrome. We’ll explore the truth behind why they’re happening, and (the essential bit!) we’ll be sharing strategies for support including a helpful protocol for staff members, a preventative strengths-based tool and a powerful teacher-tested tip we see as the centerpiece of positive behavior support.
