In August 2016, Dr. Little, Dr. Pearl, and Dena Slanda attended the Professional Learning Meeting for NCII and 325K Projects. During this meeting, project personnel were provided with hands-on learning experiences designed to enhance current course offerings by Project Bridges at UCF with access to tools and resources from NCII. This learning meeting further provided information on alignment of intensive interventions within a Multi-Tiered System of Support (MTSS) and focused on the importance of integrating academics and behavior. 

Drs. Little and Pearl, along with project assistant Dena Slanda, attended and presented at the Office of Special Education Program's (OSEP) Project Director's conference in Washington, DC held August 1-3, 2016.  This conference provided the Project Bridges team with the opportunity to share their important work with grantees to determine and implement areas for improvement to our work through discussions focused on current topics.
