SRP Online Seminars

Online Seminars for School Related Professionals:



Seminar: Poverty and Its Effect on Learning - Section 1

According to recent statistics, 51% of our nation’s children now live in poverty and the number appears to be growing. In New York State, about one in five children lives below the traditional measure of poverty and about half of those children live in extreme poverty. This seminar will explore the implications of poverty and socioeconomic issues on our students. Participants will examine the importance of building relationships and a sense of community within schools as well as creating a school environment that effectively engages students from low socioeconomic status as a way to combat poverty.

This seminar can be used to meet CTLE hours.

Seminar: Disability Awareness - Section 1

School-related professionals (SRP) play an important role with students with disabilities whether it is in the special education classroom, on the bus, in the cafeteria, on the playground, etc. They may work closely with one student with severe disabilities or multiple students with less severe disabilities. Therefore, it is important that all SRPs have a general understanding of The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), characteristics of disabilities, and key concepts related to the education of students with disabilities. Through this program, participants will refine their skills and knowledge by experiencing what it is like to have a disability and then applying this information as they identify strategies to improve student learning and behavior specific to the students they support.
