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.

Mental Health Awareness Week gives us a chance to highlight why mental health is as important as physical health to our quality of life. Access to mental health services in schools is critical to a child’s ability to thrive academically and in life. Schools offer an ideal context for prevention, intervention, positive development, and regular communication between school and families. Mental health services provided in schools that are not appropriate to the learning environment risk being ineffective or even counterproductive.To meet student needs, collaboration between schools and community mental health providers is a necessity. Learn more about school-based mental health services and it's affect on student learning and well-being - Credit National Association of School Psychologist https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources-and-podcasts/mental-health/school-psychology-and-mental-health/school-based-mental-health-services

It is National Deaf Awareness Week! This week the Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at ESU 16 will be sharing some TIPS for when you are visiting with your hard of hearing students, friends or family members. Friday's Tip Of The Day: Be aware of the fatigue factor. Listening with a hearing loss is quite tiring. As the day wears on, your student, friend or family member may need a break from watching and listening. Accurate listening may wane in the latter part of the school/work day.

This week the Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at ESU 16 will be sharing some TIPS for when you are visiting with your hard of hearing students, friends or family members. Thursday's Tip Of The Day: When you are using a whiteboard or a smart board, best practice for teaching students with hearing loss is to write first, then turn and talk. Using an Elmo is a great option since you are facing the class as you write. *For Friends for family members, please look at the deaf/hard of hearing person the whole time you are speaking.

It is National Deaf Awareness Week! This week the Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at ESU 16 will be sharing some TIPS for when you are visiting with your hard of hearing students, friends or family members. Wednesday's Tip Of The Day: Preferential seating may be more than just front of the classroom placement. Depending on whether one or both ears are affected, your student's seat could be almost anywhere in the room! Factors to consider are: closeness to the main speaker, usually the teacher; the availability of speechreading the other students; the proximity to other noise makers such as pencil sharpeners, hallway noise, or fans. Allow the student/person to move to where they can hear the best.

This week the Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at ESU 16 will be sharing some TIPS for when you are visiting with your hard of hearing students, friends or family members. Tuesday's Tip Of The Day: Small group learning sessions can cause a large amount of noise! Consider placing the hard of hearing student's group in a quiet alternate location. *If it is a friend or family member with a hearing loss, please be considerate that it is very difficult for them to hear in group settings such as restaurants, meetings, and social events.
