Supporting Dual Language Learners ~ Webinar (English) (.5 CEU)

 January 21 & 28, 2017, 9:00-11:00 AM And 1 hour of homework

Webinar (online)

A child’s approaches to learning begin to develop at birth. These approaches influence learning in all areas including language. Language is directly related to a individual’s identity and self-esteem (WIDA, 2014). Respecting and supporting a child’s home language is imperative to healthy development across domains. Yet, many children enter programs in which they need to adjust to a new social and linguistic situation and in which English is the main spoken language. In this training, participants will learn about the importance of supporting a child’s home language and culture as well as stages of learning a second language. By exploring and using various strategies, including use of the WIDA Early Language Development Standards, participants will be able to provide a developmentally sound framework to support Dual Language Learners and their families in their program

Adapting for Sensory Integration Challenges in Early Childhood Settings (.5 CEU)

Saturday, February 4, 2017 from 9:30-3:00

Quincy

Sensory Processing (also referred to as sensory integration or SI) is a term that is used to describe the way the nervous system gets messages from the senses and converts them into appropriate motor and behavioral responses. Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) refers to a condition that exists when signals do not get organized into appropriate responses. It has been referred to as a neurological “traffic jam”. One research study states that 1 in every 6 children experience sensory symptoms that affect aspects of everyday life functions (Ben-Sasson, Caerter, Briggs-Gowen, 2009). In this course participants will explore methods that early childhood educators can incorporate into their programs that support and build resiliency in children with SPD.

Apoyo a los estudiantes del idioma Dual (español) ~ Seminario Web (.5 CEU)

January 10 and 17 2017, 6:30-9:00 PM

Online course

Los enfoques de aprendizaje del niño empiezan a desarrollarse al nacer. Estos enfoques influyen en el aprendizaje en todas las áreas incluyendo el lenguaje. El lenguaje está directamente relacionado con la identidad y la autoestima de un individuo (WIDA, 2014). Respetar y apoyar el lenguaje del hogar de un niño es imprescindible para un desarrollo saludable en todos los dominios. Sin embargo, muchos niños entran en programas en los que tienen que adaptarse a una nueva situación social y lingüística y en los que el inglés es el idioma principal. En esta capacitación, los participantes aprenderán sobre la importancia de apoyar el idioma y la cultura de cada niño, así como las etapas de aprendizaje de un segundo idioma. Al explorar y utilizar diversas estrategias, incluyendo el uso de las Normas de Desarrollo del Lenguaje Temprano de WIDA, los participantes podrán proveer un marco de desarrollo sólido para apoyar a los Estudiantes de Doble Lenguaje al igual que a sus familias.
