Limited Capacity seats available

This session focuses on creating opportunities for families and schools to push the field forward by facilitating opportunities to participate in the MAPs (McGill Action Plan) process. Although the MAPS process has been used throughout inclusive education, teacher preparation training programs are not often trained in the process. Recent research indicates that through training, teacher candidates often gain a deeper understanding of the studentŸ??s support system, future goals and aspirations, and ways to facilitate and work with families to create access to these goals. Additionally, this session will discuss and emphasize the importance of the process in bridging the gap between family/school/community linkages and create opportunities to continue the conversations. By the end of the session, participants will be able to: 1) Understand and identify the core principles of the MAPs process 2) Discuss the importance of the MAPs process in facilitating family/school/community linkages 3) Identify ways to facilitate the MAPs process with teachers, families, and community members.
