Hello!  I just learned about the following training opportunity, unfortunately very few details seem to be available so if you have questions please ask:
Enid Costley at enid.costley at lva.virginia.gov<mailto:enid.costley at lva.virginia.gov>. It is an online training expanding on dimensions of language and literacy development addressed in the Every Child Ready to Read 2nd Edition early literacy curriculum.  It includes more research and covers the developmental progression of oral language and early literacy skills.

This is a new course, I have not taken it so have no more information than you about the content, schedule, or rigor of study required.  However, I have attended face-to-face trainings by Saroj Ghoting and she is amazing!  For those of you not familiar with her, she is sort-of an early literacy guru in the library community.
