2021 Early Years Conference has ended
The 18th Annual Early Years Conference focus is on understanding the approach to a Multi Tiered System of Support. Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) is a framework that promotes equity and access by engaging “ALL” through a tiered approach that uses differentiation of services and supports. “All means ALL”.

Feedback form is now closed.

De-stress the distress of systems change work through implementation of adult wellness practices within your MTSS framework. According to the Learning Policy Institute Study 2017, 85% of teachers reported a work-life imbalance affecting their ability to teach. With the current pandemic stress and fatigue felt by most educators, now more than ever, the MTSS framework should support resiliency and self-regulation for ALL adults who work with young children. This interactive session will explore the scientific skills that build support for growth and learning that underlies a healthy sense of self. Participants are invited to experience a variety of self-care strategies such as mindfulness meditation, appreciative inquiry, compassionate communication and trauma-sensitive language and movement. Adult Wellness resources, action plan and fluency-building tips for your MTSS framework will be provided.
