EI Special Training

In response to early intervention stakeholder requests, the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities (DODD) proposes to develop and provide professional development specifically for Ohio interventionists providing special instruction. DODD is seeking proposals from qualified contractors to provide the content necessary for the DODD training team to develop three competency based asynchronous courses:

  • Principles and practices for peer mentoring of first year developmental specialists
  • Principles of special instruction
  • Cognitive and social and emotional development of infants and toddlers with developmental delays and/or disabilities These courses will be grounded in adult learning and instructional design principals, which are essential for adult “students” to successfully change practices and build new competencies.
