SELPA/Regional Lead 

Application Process

As part of the SELPA Content Lead Grant, the Open Access project provides an opportunity for SELPAs across the state of California to join us in building capacity across your region in supporting implementation of UDL, AT & AAC. These projects will be implemented using the continuous improvement process to scale up evidence-based practices in UDL, AT & AAC. Projects will be delivered in a “training of trainer” model and will include all training and implementation resources.

Video overview of the open access project

In order to make an informed decision about whether a project is right for your team, we will set up a virtual or face-to-face meeting (depending on your location) to go in-depth and answer any questions about each project you may be interested in pursuing.  Please include as many potential team members, potential trainers/coaches, LEA administrators, COE partners, and even other SELPA administrators in you region who you may support as you build up capacity in your region.
