8:45 am: Keynote Address: Collaborative & Proactive Solutions: Fostering the Better Side of Human Nature in Classrooms and Families​
Dr. Ross Greene’s evidence-based Collaborative & Proactive Solutions model – as described in his books The Explosive Child and Lost at School -- has transformed the understanding of treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges in countless families, schools, and therapeutic facilities. With the release of his most recent book, Raising Human Beings, Dr. Greene has turned his attention to all kids, with a particular focus on teaching the skills that define the better side of human nature: empathy, appreciating how one’s behavior is affecting others, resolving disagreements without conflict, taking another’s perspective, and honesty. These skills have never been more important, and research indicates that solving problems collaboratively and proactively teaches these skills with any kid. And – despite academic initiatives that have made it harder for educators to be the socialization agents they’ve always been -- that’s something that parents and educators have boundless opportunities to teach, model, and practice every day.​

11:45 am - 12:30 pm: Social/Emotional/Behavioral High-Leverage Practices​
Mindy Gumpert, PhD., Adjunct Instructor Virginia Wesleyan University and Old Dominion University
In 2017, the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) developed 22 high-leverage practices (HLPs) intended to address the most critical practices that every K-12 special education teacher should master. The HLPs include four intertwined components of teacher practice: collaboration, assessment, social/emotional/behavioral practices, and instruction. This session will highlight the four HLPs of social/emotional/behavioral practices. Specific examples will be provided for how to a) establish a consistent, organized, and respectful learning environment, b) provide positive and constructive feedback to guide students’ learning and behavior, c) teach social behaviors, and d) develop individual student behavior support plans. Teachers will leave the session with new ideas to add to their teaching toolbox.
