• EI ECSE Autism PLC

    Welcome, EI/ECSE Providers!
    Join our PLC! All early intervention and early childhood professionals in our region are welcome to join those in Multnomah, Clackamas, Hood River, and Wasco counties. 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 a collaboration between Columbia Regional and Clackamas ESD, we formed this PLC as a venue for early childhood professionals to connect, share resources, obtain professional development, and support one another around problems of practice.


    The PLC will meet approximately every six weeks from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (some meetings may run up to 2 hours with discussion). The following dates are scheduled for this 2022-2023 school year:

    10/21/22: Supporting families in understanding the importance of play in everyday routines. How play supports development.
