SEL for Everyone: Promoting Essential Social and Emotional Skills in Special Education
April 25, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. EST
Jennifer Townsend, M.Ed., is an Educational Consultant with expertise in social emotional learning differences. She has extensive experience working in collaboration with school districts to build capacity for educating students with autism spectrum disorder and related disabilities using best practices paired with appreciative inquiry coaching and universal designs for learning. In this webinar, participants will examine how individuals with a social emotional learning difference such as autism benefit greatly from supports to enhance social emotional engagement. By creating a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that supports all learners, we can create a place where all learners actively engage in their learning experiences. Participants will explore practical tools for how to identify what works to enhance learner engagemen and examine resources from the Social Emotional Engagement Knowledge and Skills (SEE-KS) framework that provide educators with a focus on ensuring learning strategies to promote access, engagement and expression of learning across various stages of development.
