adult assisting youth with assignment Together @ Home: Resources for Youth and Families was a virtual conference designed specifically for   families and students to finish the schoolyear strong. Presenters offered twenty-minute sessions to assist   with learning in a virtual environment. During this event, resources available to support learning at home   were identified, strategies for staying connected to others were defined and discussed, and techniques for engaging families and youth were shared.








We are happy to provide the recorded sessions via the following playlists as well as shared Power points and resources:

Camp Kinda 

Camp Kinda is a free virtual summer experience designed to keep kids in grades K-8 engaged, curious, and having fun—even if they are at home. It's a different type of summer camp for a different type of summer. Each day’s activities are carefully curated by passionate experts. You’ll even get suggested questions to ask your kids and family activities you can all do together.

Se acabaron las clases, pero las bibliotecas y parques permanecen cerrados y los campamentos de verano, cancelados. ¡Todos seguimos en casa! Y si los niños no tienen nada que hacer, será un verano muy largo para todos.

Por eso hemos creado el Campamento Más o Menos, una experiencia de verano virtual gratuita diseñada para mantener a los niños de K-8º grado ocupados, interesados y divertidos durante todo el verano. https://campkinda.org/es/

Family Resources – Supports, Coping, Virtual Learning, and More

 

Supporting a child with a disability through the education process takes a team approach. As a parent, you are an essential partner in your child’s education. There are many partners that are able to provide support, including your local school district.

Additionally, the Pennsylvania Training and Technical Assistance Network (PaTTAN) has gathered many resources, training events, and videos to assist you in learning about specific disabilities and education initiatives.
