Fundamentals of Early Childhood Special Education Administration Webinar (Recorded)
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) provided the Fundamentals of Early Childhood Special Education Administration Webinar. The purpose was 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.
The Webinar 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 Webinar provides 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, including Indicator 6 (Preschool Placement), Indicator 7 (Child Outcomes), and Indicator 12 (Transition from Part C to Part B); and
- Components of the Virginia Early Childhood Quality Improvement plan.
The Webinar was January 13 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. The Webinar has been recorded and is available by request by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
