Professional Development Workshops

We offer SEL and Inclusion workshops to support school communities.

SEL

Empathy and Sympathy: What’s the Difference?
Q

Empathy and Sympathy: What’s the Difference?

Empathy is a critical life skill that drives more meaningful and positive relationships. This workshop explores the difference between empathy and sympathy and the roles they play in nurturing connected, engaged learners and learning communities. Participants reflect on their own abilities to demonstrate empathy while gaining tools to teach empathy explicitly to their students through the lens of disability.

SEL Embedded as Curriculum
Q

SEL Embedded as Curriculum

Social-emotional learning is not an add-on; it is an essential element of education that teachers and schools are integrating into standard curricula every day. In this workshop, we explore strategies for embedding SEL seamlessly into any school’s existing curriculum. Through case studies, resources, and an opportunity for educators to consider the supports they need, participants will be better equipped to strengthen SEL in their classrooms.

SEL for Complex Learners
Q

SEL for Complex Learners

How can you address the social-emotional learning needs of your complex learners? This training explores the how and why behind social-emotional skill-building for complex learners and provides specific strategies educators can use to ensure effective SEL instruction for learners of all kinds.

INCLUSION

Building an Inclusive Mindset
Q

Building an Inclusive Mindset

An inclusive mindset is key to implementing inclusive practices. It’s a muscle that needs practice and commitment, and educators need tools to trasition from strategy to action. In this workshop, educators will reflect on what it means to have an inclusive mindset, consider their own areas of strength, and identify how they can cultivate an inclusive mindset among their students.

Building Inclusive Communities To Support Social-Emotional Growth
Q

Building Inclusive Communities To Support Social-Emotional Growth

Through honest discussion and reflection, this workshop helps schools assess how their learning community currently addresses social-emotional learning and inclusion for all students. We not only identify barriers, but also existing supports and new strategies for fostering inclusion throughout the learning community.

Disability as Diversity
Q

Disability as Diversity

Although it is the world’s largest minority, disability is often not talked about in schools. In this workshop, participants will explore how students with disabilities contribute to diversity in a school population, what general perceptions of disability are, and how we can work to ensure that disability is considered when assessing and supporting diversity. The session focuses on topics such as language around disability and ableism to support participants in identifying actionable steps they can take (and bring back to their teams) to strengthen awareness in their learning communities.

Virtual Coaching

We offer coaching on a variety of topics including Instructional Coaching, Administrator Coaching, New Teacher Coaching, and more.

Site Visits

We collaborate with school stakeholders to define clear goals for site visits. Some activities include Student Focus Groups, Educator Focus Groups‬ and Structured Observations‬.

Family Workshops

Changing Perspectives is pleased to offer family programming and educational materials as part of our consultation offerings.

Some Family Workshops we offer are:

Unpacking Social-Emotional Learning
Q

Unpacking Social-Emotional Learning

Though social-emotional learning has become an education buzzword with good reason, many parents and caregivers are unfamiliar with the term or unaware of all that it encompasses. In this informative workshop, we unpack the five key competencies, outline the specific skills that make up social-emotional learning, and discuss SEL’s essential role in students’ lifelong success.

Supporting Social-Emotional Learning at Home
Q

Supporting Social-Emotional Learning at Home

Looking to engage parents and caregivers in supporting students’ social and emotional well-being at home? Participants in this workshop explore a variety of strategies they can integrate into their households with learners of all ages. We review a bank of valuable resources parents and caregivers can access for additional information about supporting students’ SEL in intentional ways to build empathy, kindness, and an inclusion mindset.

What Is Disability Awareness?
Q

What Is Disability Awareness?

Disability is the world’s largest minority and touches all of our lives in some way. But knowing disabilities exist and being truly aware of disabilities are not the same thing. In this workshop, we define the concepts around disability awareness to answer the fundamental questions: What is disability awareness? Why is it important? How is disability awareness related to self-confidence and empathy?

Disability Awareness in Action
Q

Disability Awareness in Action

In this collaborative, discussion-based opportunity for parents and caregivers and their students with disabilities, participants engage in guided conversation and activities around disability awareness to explore self-advocacy skills such as self-awareness, understanding your rights, recognizing the difference between a want and a need, knowledge of supports, and proactive communication methods.
