The first section of the training covers background issues, problems, laws, and research needed to assist staff in addressing the belief systems of others, and their own belief systems, that are impacting the progress in this field. The content focuses on understanding the relationship between acculturation, belief systems, practices and results.

Using the ELL Critical Data Process in Early Childhood and Preschool

The second section focuses on training on how to complete the Preschool Version of the ELL Critical Data Process. This process helps staff to gather the most critical data, follow a structured process, and create a product that helps them to see whether more interventions are needed or if a special education referral is a reasonable option. The Preschool Version of the ELL Critical Data Process brings key staff members to the table and structures the discussions so that a student’s needs are better understood. The Preschool Version focuses less on measured data and more on specific comparisons of the child’s development in key areas as compared to like peers’ development in the same areas, focusing on the LE3AP process.
