Introductory, In-depth, Follow-up Workshops

Purpose

All Developmental Designs workshops can be held at your school site. On-site workshops provide schools with the opportunity to share training across the staff and integrate specific school concerns into the topics and questions addressed in the workshops.

Process

Introductory Workshop
The Getting Started with Developmental Designs Practices, an introductory one-day workshop, provides an overview of the approach and how it can be used to increase student learning while reducing problem behaviors. We present Samplers every fall and spring at locations throughout the country, as well as on-site in schools and districts.

In-Depth Training
For schools interested in pursuing in-depth training for middle-level staff, our week-long institutes, Developmental Designs 1 and Developmental Designs 2, are the core workshops. We present these workshops in locations nationwide each summer; we also offer them on-site for schools and districts. On-site trainings for groups of up to 30 participants can be divided into several sessions and presented over the course of up to three months.

Follow-up Workshops
Once a core group of educators in a school have completed the first level of training,  Developmental Designs 1, we offer on-site follow-up workshops to support your implementation, including:

Additional follow-up workshops are available at your school site.

Consulting Teachers

Consulting teachers who provide on-site workshops and staff meeting support have all successfully used the strategies they teach and demonstrate. They have been extensively trained and are nationally certified to facilitate Developmental Designs workshops, and are skilled in helping educators reach their goals.
