Amanda Schwartz Consulting
Early Interventionist and Professional Learning Specialist
This session is sponsored by the United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education.
Engaging families can be a challenge, particularly if their infant or toddler has a disability or may show signs of developmental delay. Families of children with disabilities are often deluged by service providers and advice from early intervention teams, therapists, doctors, and other professionals. However, strong relationships between program staff and families are an essential component of effectively including infants and toddlers with disabilities in programs. Join this session to learn strategies for enhancing family engagement practices for your program as well as your staff’s confidence in building culturally responsive partnerships with families of the infants and toddlers with disabilities included in your program.
Participants will learn:
1) The every day context for families of infants and toddlers with disabilities
2) Strategies for enhancing program systems to support and engage families of infants and toddlers with disabilities
3) Professional development strategies to enhance staff’s competence and confidence in talking with infants and toddlers with disabilities
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
