Limited Capacity seats available

This presentation shares findings from a qualitative teacher mentoring intervention. The multicomponent intervention examined the impact of providing beginning teachers of students with extensive support needs mentoring to support their self-efficacy, implementation of evidence-based practices, and ability to facilitate inclusive education. The mentoring intervention was designed to respond the unique needs of beginning teachers of students with extensive support needs and leveraged multiple, innovative components from the literature to help reduce teacher attrition and isolation. The multicomponent mentoring intervention included: (a) providing teachers targeted contextual mentoring by an on-site building mentor, (b) providing teachers e-mentoring around instruction from an experienced teacher of students with extensive support needs, and (c) providing teachers online professional development focused on evidence-based practices. The aim of the mentoring intervention was to provide a creative, context-specific mentoring program for beginning teachers of students with extensive support needs to increase their capacity to provide inclusive education, which aligns with the 2018 program theme.
