Fundamentals of Early Childhood Special Education Administration 2-Part Series (VDOE)


The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) will offer the Fundamentals of Early Childhood Special Education Administration webinars. The purpose is to deliver targeted technical assistance to school division leaders who act as the program administrator for early childhood special education (ECSE) programs. Since each division is different, this may include directors, coordinators, specialists, lead teachers, or others serving in this capacity.

This two-part series is specifically designed for ECSE administrators who are new to their role and will provide an overview of the early childhood system and key elements related to implementing quality programs for preschool children with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs). Specifically, the two webinars will provide an overview of:

  • Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education programs;
  • The VDOE guidance regarding inclusion of children with disabilities and resources to support increasing and improving inclusive practices;
  • Indicators related to Early Childhood Special Education, including Indicator 6 (Preschool Placement), Indicator 7 (Preschool Child Outcomes), and Indicator 12 (Transition from Part C to Part B); and
  • Advancing Effective Interactions and Instruction.

The webinars will be August 18 and August 25 from 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. Registration is required to participate and you need to register only once to attend both webinars. Resources needed for the webinar will be emailed to those registered a few days prior to the event. The webinar will be recorded and the recording will be available to all who register.
