Deana Good afternoon, everyone. Thank you for joining today’s webinar. We will start in 1 minute. <OK it’s 12pm, let’s get started> Good afternoon! This is Deana Buck from Virginia’s Integrated Training Collaborative, and I thrilled to have Carol Trivette from the Center for Early Literacy Learning joining me for today’s webinar. Dr. Trivette is a leader in the field of early childhood, having contributed to our research and evidence-based practices. Dr. Trivette and her colleagues at the Puckett Institute have been leaders in translating research into practices that can be implemented by families, caregivers, and interventionists in practice. Dr. Trivette joins us today to share information about the Center for Early Literacy Learning, particularly for early intervention providers. You should know that this work is part of the CELL project’s work in Virginia. To date, staff from the CELL project have trained cohorts of trainers in Lynchburg and Roanoke, and a training of trainers is scheduled for NoVA on August 11 th and 12 th . In addition, Dr. Trivette will be participating in an early childhood professional develoment summit in Staunton next week. From a practical point of view, I was interested in having Dr. Trivette join us so that she could orient you to the amazing resources and toolls that have been developed through CELL. This project will end in September, but the resources will remain on the website for our continued use. The video clips are wonderful, and illustrate practical ways to infuse literacy and learning into every day routines and activities. Thank you for joining us today.
