Addressing Barriers to Learning: Overview of the Curriculum for an Enabling (or Learning Supports) Component. A Center Quick Training Aid.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for Mental Health in Schools.
To reach academic goals such as reducing the achievement gap and leaving no child behind, schools must include a focus on addressing barriers to student learning to ensure all children have an equal opportunity to succeed at school. Such a focus requires a high-level policy commitment to establishing an "enabling component." Operationalizing an enabling component requires formulating a framework of basic program areas and then creating an infrastructure to restructure and enhance existing resources. This quick training aid presents a brief set of resources to guide those providing an in-service training session on establishing an enabling component. The packet contains a brief introduction to the topic with key talking points, fact sheets and practice notes, tools and handouts, continuing education modules, and a directory of additional resources.
