The Train-the-Trainer (TTT) Institute on “Using the DRDP (2015) for Special Education” is a one-day workshop offered each fall that prepares training teams from school districts and SELPAs to train local staff in using the DRDP (2015) instrument for early intervention and preschool special education (age 0-5). SELPAs are responsible for staff training on the DRDP (2015) and are invited to send a two-person training team to the TTT. Multi-district SELPAs may send more staff members as needed. Please coordinate with your staff since space is limited. We recommend that trainers have the qualifications listed on the Trainer Qualifications document.

All preschool-age children with IEPs will be assessed with the Preschool Fundamental View beginning in the fall of 2016.
