Please note: CADRE will be releasing an updated series on Working Together. The series will feature 5 courses: An Introduction to the Working Together Series, IEP Meetings and Beyond, Listening and Responding, Managing and Responding to Emotions, and Focusing on Interests to Reach Agreement. The courses will be rolled out as they are completed. Supplemental resources and a facilitator guide will also be developed. Stay tuned!
