Meet Our StaffKern County Consortium SELPA personnel include the Program Specialists who are designated to assist in curriculum development, resource identification, teacher/staff/parent support and professional development. The Program Specialists are selected as experts in their field and for their ability to share this information with others. They are not administrators. They act as a resource to the school personnel in developing an appropriate program for students. They provide training and inservice to the personnel and parents and agencies that will lead to improved curricular and program services for the students with disabilities throughout the SELPA.

Each of us will provide assistance to help teachers who have a concern or request for a student or several students and administrators who request support. And each of us has a special interest field that will be able to provide in-depth assistance - for example, reading, fine motor skills, autism, language development, behavior and behavior intervention, specific programs approaches (TEACCH, low incidence, phonemic awareness, behavior consultation and intervention), curriculum and programs for children with severe disabilities.
