EI Research & Evidence-Based Practices - Part 2
In recent months, we've spent a lot of time highlighting evidence-based practices in EI. The October ITC Update provided numerous resources on this topic. This month, we thought we go one step further and feature Part 2 on EI evidence-based practices that you can use in your discussions with referral sources such as doctors and with providers who may have questions about early intervention.

| KALEIDOSCOPE TRAINING:|
Kaleidoscope: New Perspectives in Service Coordination, Levels I and II are required professional development trainings for all new service coordinators (although all are invited!) Trainings are held twice per year in cadres (KI and KII occurring in same location, one month apart) so that service coordinators have the opportunity to learn with each other for both Kaleidoscope sessions. Spring Kaleidoscope sessions take place in the Valley region during March (KI)/April (KII). Fall Kaleidoscope sessions are scheduled in the Richmond region during September (KI)/ October (KII).
Registration is now available for spring 2014 KI and KII training. Both trainings will be held at the Plecker Work Force Center at Blue Ridge Community College in Weyers Cave.

| TALKS ON TUESDAYS|
Talks on Tuesdays (ToTs) are one-hour webinars designed to provide free online training opportunities related to important topics in early intervention. Topics chosen for the Talks on Tuesdays webinar series are based on feedback from EI practitioners about what they need to know more about! ToTs are held on the first Tuesday of the month from 12:00-1:00PM.
Join us on December 3rd for our next Talks on Tuesday on Executive Functions which will be presented by Ann Janney-Shultz. Registration will be open soon!
The November Talks on Tuesday, "I Know It, but Can't Explain It - What the Evidence Based Practices are in EI" is now archived!
Be sure to check out handout #3 for additional resources on our featured topic.
Registration slots for our ToTs frequently fill quickly HOWEVER far fewer people join the actual webinar. We'd like to request that you register only if you plan to attend so that all who are interested are able to login. Additionally, if you participate as a group, each individual does not need to register. One person can register for the group and can then share the access to the survey allowing each individual to obtain a certificate of participation. As a reminder, all ToTs are archived for your ease of access at times convenient to you. Thank you in advance for helping.
