    SCERTS in Action: May 5, 8:30 am to 3:30 pm

    The Marin County SELPA will be hosting the following professional development opportunity: SCERTS in Action:    

    Presenter: Emily Rubin, MS, CCC-SLP (Co-Author, The SCERTS Model)

    Intended Audience: Pre-K through Grade Two

    Date: May 12, 2017,  8:30am - 3:30pm at Marin County Office of Education

    Course Description: This course is intended for both those who are seeking an introduction to the SCERTS framework as well as those who have previously participated in training but are seeking updated guidelines for implementation. The agenda will begin with a review of the current neuroscience in social emotional development and current educational research on best practice guidelines. This information will be presented in a manner that informs our development of programming tailored to the unique needs of students with learning differences in this domain (e.g., autism and related social emotional learning differences). Next, participants will learn how the SCERTS framework can be used to develop IEP goals that are closely linked to the core challenges and high priority skills of children who are not yet using words, beginning to use words, and who are using conversational language. Finally, the course will conclude with the steps for identifying a child’s developmental stage, determining what is already working in the classroom setting, and identifying next steps for program planning.
