Restorative Practices and Special Education

Last Date:

3701 Hayes St. NE
Cesar Chavez Parkside Campus

Restorative Justice is committed to educating youth, regardless of their social, emotional, physical, or intellectual abilities. Students with special needs and trauma are a significant part of school populations and are disproportionately represented in school discipline cases. Even where there is no formal diagnosis, these students have varying capacities for sustained attention, social awareness, intellectual cognition, emotional regulation, memory, and expressive and receptive language. This one-day experiential workshop will help teachers, administrators, and special education staff identify and accommodate these differences as an essential part of preparing for, facilitating, and following up on responsive interventions such as responsive circles.
The Restorative Justice Overview, or similar introductory, training is a prerequisite to attending this workshop. Full attendance in the Basics of Circle Facilitation the Responsive Circle Facilitation trainings is preferred. Upon completion of this training, and all prerequisites, participants will be ready to hold basic responsive circles, including preparation and agreement making, for students with a variety of special needs.
This training will take place on Wednesday, May 31, 2017, 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. at Cesar Chavez Parkside Campus, 3701 Hayes St. NE. Space is limited and registration is required.
