The WIDA Early English Language Development Standards (E-ELD) were specifically developed to help support the unique language needs of Dual Language Learners (DLLs), ages 2.5-5.5 years of age, who are in the process of learning more than one language prior to Kindergarten entry.  As language learning occurs across all areas of standards-based curricula, it is critical that early childhood programs use language standards in conjunction with Early Learning Standards when supporting, instructing, and assessing DLLs.  This course, second in a series of three modules, addresses the importance of home language, school readiness, socio-cultural contexts, and developmentally appropriate academic language.  Participants will learn how to integrate the E-ELD with EEC Standards into a play based curriculum that supports DLL’s language development.      

Prerequisite:  This is part 2 of a 3 part series.  Participants must have completed Introduction to the WIDA Early English Language Development (E-ELD) Standards, 2.5-5.5 years old - Module 1.

You can help by volunteering to become a Special Education Surrogate Parent (SESP) for a student, in the custody of the state, that requires special education supports and whose parents are unknown or unavailable. These children depend on SESPs to protect their legal right to a free and appropriate education.

SESPs serve as appointed decision makers that have the legal authority of a parent or legal guardian to attend and participate in special education team meetings, approve or reject Individual Education Plans (IEPs), and if necessary, file complaints or appeals. On average, the time commitment is only 30-40 hours a year.

RTSC host FREE Orientation Trainings throughout the state where you will learn about the role of an SESP, how traumatic experiences can impact learning, and how to incorporate the appropriate supports into the IEP. Register to attend this training or visit our website at www.fcsn.org/rtsc/ to view our current training schedule for other opportunities.

    Contact: Anitza Guadarrama-Tiernan   617-502-8751   anitza.guadarrama-tiernan@state.ma.us
   

The protective factors provide both a framework and an interrelated approach to serving families and reducing incidences of child abuse and neglect. The first part of this training will focus on providing information and knowledge for those who are not familiar with the Strengthening Families protective factors. Participants will understand the Strengthening Families protective factors and the seven key strategies that support the presence of protective factors. 

In the second part, participants will learn about the Parent Café model as a tool for parent engagement. Parent Cafés are being used across the country as effective vehicles for engaging parents, families, and communities in conversations that matter. Many states, like Massachusetts, who are implementing the Strengthening Families framework, use Parent Cafés to engage parents and families in discussions on how to support the development of the five strengthening families’ protective factors that make their families strong. Parent Cafés are fun, engaging, inclusive and culturally inclusive. They also provide a wonderful opportunity to hear parent and family voices and develop parent and family leadership in organizations and communities. Participants will be prepared to host and support delivery of Parent Café activities.
