Thank you for your
25 years of dedication and commitment to Virginia's early intervention system.

 
SEPTEMBER 2014

The Integrated Training Collaborative (ITC) coordinates Virginia's Comprehensive System of Personnel Development (CSPD) which is the professional development system for early interventionists who provide supports and services to eligible children and families under Part C of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). 

featureMONTHLY FEATURED TOPIC - Hearing

 

Virginia's Early Hearing Detection and Intervention program has identified the goal "to identify congenital hearing loss in children before three months of age and to assure enrollment in appropriate early intervention services before six months of age." 

 

Are you seeing any children with a hearing impairment? Need some good resources to enhance your practice?

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).

 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.

Take Note

NO ToT in October 2014 

The Virginia EI Professional Development team will be presenting at a conference during our typically scheduled first Tuesday of the month webinar for October.  

 

We hope you might consider catching up on one or two of the archived webinars you've been planning to watch but just haven't gotten around to it. There are so many to choose from but we've selected a few tied to "Baby Talk." Check them out:

And plan to join us on November 4th for our next ToT, Bridges out of Poverty: How Poverty Impacts Behavior and Choices, featuring Mylinda Moore from CHIP. Registration will be available soon.
