Courses and Tutorials
DR Access Learn
The California Department of Education, Special Education Division requires DRDP training for all early childhood special educators who assess children with the DRDP. SELPAs are responsible for ensuring that all staff who administer the DRDP (2015) complete training.
- Create an account and access courses at DRAccessLearn.org
- Complete the first course, “Using the DRDP (2015) for Special Education” (including a Demonstration of Rating Skills) and all courses in subsequent years.
- Assess eligible children with the DRDP even if courses are not yet completed.
- Find more information about the DRDP assessment requirements in Appendix A of the DRDP (2015) Preschool Fundamental View Manual.
Are you providing instruction to a child on an IEP goal or related to a DRDP measure? In this Learn It & Use It session we practiced breaking it down into proximal learning targets using the authentic assessment information from the DRDP to determine what knowledge, skills, or behaviors to teach in daily activities, routines, and transitions for children with IFSPs and IEPs.
Learn about adaptations for preschool children with IEPs (Individualized Education Programs) by meeting our friend Augie and his teacher, Ms. Keisha. You will see examples of adaptations used in distance learning and you can download guidance and a worksheet to help you and your team plan adaptations for your students.
