Embedding Social-Emotional Learning into Behavioral Supports 

Thursday, March 24, 2022
2 p.m. Eastern / 1 p.m. Central / 11 a.m. Pacific

The COVID-19 pandemic—and the significant educational disruption, limited social contact, and increased fear and anxiety around everyday activities it has caused—illustrated the need for increased attention to the social, emotional, and behavioral well-being of our students. In Embedding Social Emotional Learning into Behavioral Support Systems, a new webinar hosted by Dr. Diane Myers, SESI’s SVP Special Education – Behaviors, you will gain useful insight into social-emotional learning (SEL), such as how schools can effectively: 

  • Ensure any SEL programming aligns with key SEL competencies 
  • Integrate SEL programming with existing systems to the greatest extent possible 
  • Use data to drive SEL implementation
