The Ohio Partnership for Excellence in Paraprofessional Preparation (OPEPP), a project within the University of Cincinnati Systems Development & Improvement Center, is providing several online workshops this fall to assist districts in using paraprofessional services more effectively in order to support student learning. Workshops are open to all districts and schools and would be especially useful for educator teams.

Trauma-informed Practice

This four-week workshop helps educators, especially paraprofessionals and teachers, think about ways
to connect trauma-informed practice to high-quality instruction of general education
content. Participants will:

• Identify ways trauma-informed practice can contribute to on-going efforts to promote safe and productive learning environments for all students;
• Describe classroom practices that use trauma-informed practice as a foundation for academic instruction;
• Explain how literacy instruction grounded in the Science of Reading works to off-set damaging effects of trauma; and
• Identify the ways leadership teams (DLTs, BLTs, and TBTs) can tie trauma-informed practice into overall district improvement efforts.

Questions about the workshops may be sent to Kathy Richards at kathryn.richards@uc.edu.
