topic of the month

The TATS topic for November focuses on  Differentiated Instruction   and evidence-based practices associated with addressing Florida Early Learning and Developmental Standards.    The documents and links emphasize planning developmentally appropriate activities and lessons;  meeting individual needs;  planning targeted supports and intensive interventions.

TATS Staff is pleased to announce the addition of ideas and links for strategies and interventions that address the needs of children who require specialized, targeted, and/or intensive supports and interventions. These are included in each of the sections of quality indicators for the monthly topic. We will be expanding these so please keep an eye out for the additions.

We thank you for your continued efforts for our youngest learners. Your TATS Regional Facilitators looks forward to supporting your initiatives.  Please consult  TATS Staff  page for contact information.
