About Professional Development
The NCCSE cabinet, composed of special education directors from each of our districts, is committed to having a comprehensive program of workshops that respond to the concerns of parents as well as staff members. Each year, the staff development committee meets to identify the needs of our consortium and plans meaningful programs that will address those needs. Our program offerings are diverse, from educating parents and staff members that work with students with autism to the latest information on IEP issues.
Professional Development Provider
We are an approved continuing education provider for the following boards:
- CA Speech-Language Pathology Board
- Behavior Analyst Certification Board
- National Association of School Psychologists
(Please check our workshop descriptions for specific availability)
Documentation of Attendance
When available, we send documentation of attendance to participants who attend our workshops in their entirety. Participants who arrive late or leave early will not receive an attendance document. We do not provide partial credit. It is the participant's responsibility to sign-in at the beginning and sign-out at the end of the training and complete an evaluation form. Usually, we send documentation of attendance via e-mail to participants who complete all requirements within one week of the training date. No exceptions.
These are requirements that we must follow as an approved professional development/continuing education provider. NCCSE maintains responsibility for NCCSE presented programs.

Professional Learning Communities/Communities of Practice
A professional learning community is a learning opportunity to foster collaborative learning among colleagues within a particular work environment or field. NCCSE gives you this opportunity and encourages you to take time out of your busy schedule to meet with other special education professionals from your community of practice. You will have time to collaborate, problem solve, and encourage one another. You'll be sure to leave with new ideas to implement in your program.
Some professional learning communities that meet at the NCCSE are:
- BCBAs (Board Certified Behavior Analysts)
- Preschool Staff
- Speech-Language Pathologists and Assistants
- Staff Trained in NCCSE Behavior Intervention Training Series (NBITS) Information Brochure PDF
- Adapted Physical Education Staff
- Occupational Therapists
- Staff Working with Students with Visual Impairments
- Staff Working with Students who are Deaf and Hard of Hearing (DHH)
- High School Mild Moderate Teachers
