At the end of the presentation, participants will:
• Identify evidence-based approaches to enhance family engagement in early intervention services.
• Identify and apply health literacy principles and adult education strategies to facilitate provider-caregiver interaction.
• Use effective communication strategies to enhance coaching.
Service provision in early intervention requires effective communication between professionals and families. This is especially true given the shift toward coaching within a primary service provider model. This webinar will review research findings that were guided by health literacy principles and adult education strategies to illustrate the need for enhanced communication in early intervention. Facilitation and communication strategies to be incorporated into the daily practice of early intervention professionals who utilize coaching to provide caregiver education will be addressed.
