• EI ECSE Autism PLC

    Welcome, EI/ECSE Providers!
    Join our PLC! Any early childhood professional is welcome to join - those in Multnomah, Clackamas, Hood River, Wasco and beyond! If you would like to join the PLC and be added to our contact list to receive periodic email updates, send a message to Katie Byerly at kbyerly@pps.net

    Purpose: In collaboration with Clackamas ESD, we formed this PLC as a venue for early childhood professionals to connect with one another, to share resources, to obtain professional development, and to support one another around problems of practice.

    Since several members are completing certification with the PLAY Project (an evidence-based parent-mediated model), PLAY is an important focus for the PLC in the 2021-2022 year. With input from the group, we are expanding our focus to include a broader range of evidence-based practices and topics related to assessing and serving children on the autism spectrum as well as supporting families.  


    The PLC will meet approximately every six weeks from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM on Friday mornings (some meetings may run 2 hours). The following dates are scheduled for this school year:

    1/21/22 - Welcome and brainstorming topics for the year
    2/11/22 - Special Guest: Dr. Richard Solomon, case study presentations
    3/18/22 - Case study presentations from members enrolled 
    4/15/22 - TBD
    5/20/22 - TBD

    Once you are on our email list, we will send you the Zoom link.
