February 3-4:  Active Learning Training with Patty Obrzut

Georgia Sensory Assistance Project

Active Learning is an approach based on the work of Dr. Lilli Nielsen for instructing individuals with severe multiple disabilities. It contains an assessment, a curriculum, specifically-designed equipment, and instructional strategies that support learners to be active participants in their surroundings. Patty Obrzut, Assistant Director of the Penrickton Center in Michigan will explain the approach and ways to implement it.

We will host 2 follow-up sessions via Zoom to discuss using the Functional Schemes and FIELA) and wrap up with a make & take. More information on these events will be posted later.
