Framework for Access and Belonging (FAB) Facilitator Training

Framework for Access and Belonging (FAB) Facilitator Training Part 1: The WHY


Session Dates

Wednesday February 08, 2023 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM - Webinar


Part One of a two-part series will provide the tools and strategies to facilitate the FAB process for a student’s team. During this session, the focus is on the “WHY” of the FAB process. Facilitators will examine why a student’s team would use the FAB process to design the general education classroom environment to meet the needs of students with disabilities and how the process can benefit students’ engagement, participation, and belonging. How to address requests and questions about the FAB process will be shared and discussed. The beginning steps a FAB Facilitator will take to initiate the FAB process will be detailed. Completing this first session will provide FAB Facilitators with the foundation of the FAB process (the “why”) and prepare them for the FAB phases (the “what”) during the second session.

NOTE: FAB Facilitators are required to attend this session either live, or by viewing the recording prior to the second session to be held on March 13, 2023. FAB Facilitators must be registered for both sessions in order to receive the recording for the first session
