Apr 25 
Hilton Garden Inn Champaign/ Urbana, 1501 S Neil St, Champaign, IL 61820, USA

This course is designed to provide teachers and educators a working knowledge of how an individual with autism thinks, the principles behind why children with autism respond the way they do, and the perspective needed in the classroom to work with this unique population of individuals effectively, increase the likelihood of their success, while making the classroom experience better for yourself, the child with autism, and all of his/her classmates. 

This presentation is experiential and fun as well as educational. It will answer these questions: 
• What IS autism anyway?
• Why does he do THAT? 
• Why doesn’t he respond to me? 
• How do I create a happy classroom?
 

You will leave the training with specific tools and understanding that will support you in creating a more unified classroom by making adjustments that can benefit all students rather than creating two separate teaching methods.

Jun 27 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM 
The Vermilion County Regional Office of Education, 200 College St b, Danville, IL 61832, USA

The administrative academy seeks to improve interrater reliability in the assignment of performance evaluation ratings for principals.

Participants will use data collected from the case studies and compare the data to best practices for evaluating principals and assistant principals. This data will also be analyzed to prepare administrative and school-level professional development plans. In a collaborative and supportive way, participants will prepare a targeted professional development plan that considers past results and contributes to professional and personal growth. This plan will be aligned to the school improvement plan. The instructional environment indicators will be analyzed. The purpose of the professional development plan is to communicate the outcomes and findings in such a manner that the principals and assistant principals set goals for improvement. Participants will analyze their personal biases while making these decisions. https://reg.abcsignup.com/reg/event_page.aspx?ek=0044-0016-c4cc729c946540ab946da691e6b0ce44
