Ohio Ready to Learn 1: For Family Providers – Stepping Up to Quality with TQRIS ***not SUTQ-Approved***

This is a one-hour informational session designed for Type B providers to learn about what is needed to apply for the new Tiered Quality Rating and Improvement System (TQRIS), a 5-star system that replaces the 3-star Step Up to Quality. This class begins with a video that explains all about TQRIS, and is facilitated by a trainer who can answer questions and concerns in class, or direct participants to available resources. Type B providers can begin to apply for participation on July 1, 2014.

 

Ohio Ready to Learn 2: Investigating the Learning Environment and Its Impact on Behavior ***SUTQ-Approved***

The participant will be able to explore best practice strategies when interacting with children and make choices concerning the physical childcare environment that enable the child to work toward social emotional control. Additionally, several curriculum ideas will be presented to directly teach appropriate social skills and concepts.

 

Ohio Ready to Learn 3: Using Documentation to Assess Social Emotional Development ***SUTQ-Approved***

This class reviews the process of observation and assessment and discusses the differences between objective and subjective reporting. There is a review of all collection methods and a focus on a teacher-made assessment to target a specific social emotional behavior or skill linked to content standards. Participants will also practice communicating with parents about a challenging behavior.

 

Adapting Your Environment for Children with Asthma ***SUTQ-Approved***

Likely you have, or will have, a child in your care who has asthma. Do you know how to help that child avoid having asthma episodes, and what to do if an episode occurs? This workshop gives you the information and resources you need to provide excellent care for a child with asthma.
