In the day of inclusion, we need to know how to provide meaningful instruction to EVERY student in our classroom.

Embedded Classroom Consult: One of the comments we always hear at our workshops is "You don't know MY students. These strategies will not work in my classroom, with my students." OATECA staff will demonstrate the use of our OATECA curriculum with your students. Our staff can teach your students for half a day or a full day. The teacher and classroom TAs/Paras must 'stay and play' with OATECA staff for this training.
