Are you an early childhood provider needing continuing education hours? This webinar might be for you!
One of the most important developmental domains ESU 16 Early Intervention Team helps families with is fostering healthy social-emotional development. Building positive relationships and development provides rich learning environments.
The parent is a child’s first and most important teacher. As the ESU 16 Early Intervention Team, our primary goal is to empower parents to support their child’s learning during naturally occurring daily routines and interactions. We do this through a coaching approach with families. A key concept of coaching with parent/caregivers is that the “coaching” happens during home visits and the learning for the child happens between home visits. Lets do the math: Most toddlers are awake 12 hours per day. 12 hours per day, times 7 days a week = 84 hours awake per week. If a member of our team (AKA the Primary Service Provider) provided one our of therapy one hour per week, it is easy to see that the Primary Service Provider cannot be the primary service of change. We get to see that the child is doing while we are there in the home, but not the other 83 hours the child is awake. Using M&Ms is powerful and visual way to explain the role of parents in early childhood learning and development with the support of the ESU 16 Early Intervention Team.
