The theme for the 2021 conference is Systems Change for Child-Centered Learning – An approach to MTSS and targets early care and education professionals serving children from infancy through kindergarten, in center-based, school district, and family child care settings. 

Hear from two keynote speakers who study the effects of poverty on children’s language and social outcomes, and work to address equity issues in high-needs schools, as well as numerous other early education professionals.  

Friday sessions are full, but Saturday topics include Culturally Responsive Practices, Sing & Sign: Meeting the Needs of ALL Students, and one of the keynote addresses.  

The goal of this conference is to inspire and equip the early education workforce to employ data-based decision-making to ensure that all children and family needs are being met. 

Attendees will receive effective strategies for instruction in all areas, including early literacy, language, social-emotional, physical, and cognitive skills. It will address the use of differentiated supports to meet the needs of dual language learners and children with disabilities; building an understanding that MTSS is a tiered approach to prevention, promotion, and targeted support for children and families. 

This conference will also engage members of the San Diego community to consider how MTSS is a framework that can be effectively integrated program-wide to support the various learning and developmental needs of children,
