AEA Special Education Caucus Goals
The AEA Special Education Caucus continues to meet regularly to plan professional development for district staff. An NCUEA grant application will be submitted this fall in an effort to continue these sessions.
- A collection of professional resources has been made available for member check-out through the district professional library.
- Provide a forum where educators can access relevant and factual data to meet the needs of students with special education needs. These forums will provide the most recent research and best practices for the 1,400 AEA members.
- Provide a round table discussion where educators can brainstorm innovative ideas for student instruction.
- Collaborate with AEA members and district administrative staff.
Topics presented in 2009- 2010 were: Autism Spectrum Disorder, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, Phonics, and Pediatric Dyslexia.
We would be happy to hear from you with feedback regarding our plans and willingly accept suggestions from you to add to our resource compilation. Ideas for future topics and speakers are welcome. We also encourage your participation in the caucus group as we plan for upcoming activities.
Please send your suggestions to Vicki Reinhard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
