Culturally Responsive Practices for Youth and Young Adults with and At Risk for Disabilities

Culturally responsive practices is of paramount importance given the marked demographics shifts in the U.S. population. In order to continue to meet the evolving needs of all students and clients- especially culturally and linguistically diverse youth and young adults with and at risk for disabilities; a greater understanding of equity and inclusion in education is warranted. This session is designed to center the importance of culture in the application of pedagogical and behavioral interventions. We intend to demonstrate how culturally responsive practices  can be used to build positive-student teacher and VR counselor relationships; enhance teacher/counselor-parent collaboration and communication, and foster an inclusive and caring learning environment with high expectations with the goal of positively improving educational and employment outcomes.
 
Presenters:
Dr. Bettie Ray Butler & Doctoral Fellow Sonja Gadd both from the
Urban Education Collaborative & NTACT at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte

NTACT Tool Release Alert: Transition Gradebook is Released

Register Now

In this webinar, Dr. Matthew Klare will introduce the Transition Gradebook, a school-level tool for recording individual students’ transition-related activities, including the required pre-employment transition services (Pre-ETS), and various risk and protective factors associated with dropout, graduation and positive postschool outcomes. 

The Transition Gradebook is a locally served database application that records transition-related activities from five major areas from NTACT’s Predictors of Postschool Success—specifically, Career Awareness, Work Experience, Inclusion, Student Supports, and Collaboration. It also tracks whether a student has received instruction in self-determination, social skills, life skills, and/or transportation skills. Finally, the tool records some of the risk and protective factors associated with school completion: specifically in the areas of attendance, behavior and course performance, as well as other factors that impact school engagement and postschool outcomes. 

The Gradebook generates individual student reports that can be used to support student-focused planning in IEP and transition-team meetings, career-counseling sessions and parent conferences. It can generate a report for a single period of time (quarter, trimester, semester, or year) or operate across multiple periods of time to show growth. It also generates various summary reports of risk factors and provision of services that administrators can use in analyzing trends related to graduation and dropout in their schools, planning for program development, and in demonstrating compliance with WIOA requirements for delivery of Pre-ETS services. 

The tool runs in a Linux environment on a school’s web server, or may be hosted at a cloud-based server. Installation is performed from a Cloud-based service called GitHub. For more information, go to https://www.transitionta.org/gradebook
