There are lots of resources that can support your work and professional development this summer. The Waterford Upstart program a summer learning path targeting the COVID cliff that a lot of children are experiencing. ECLKC has information geared around supporting kiddos with IEPs and IFSPs. Last but certainly not least, NHSA is getting ready to launch The Academy which will have plenty of learning opportunities of all kinds!

Love Note
