What: Supporting the Families’ Role in Family Guided Routines Based Intervention
Who: Juliann Woods, PhD, CCC-SLP, Professor, Communication Science and Disorders, Florida State University
When: Friday, March 16, 2012, 8:45 a.m. to 5:15 p.m.
Where: Extraordinary Ventures, Chapel Hill (Click here for directions)
Description of Session: By definition, routines are part of daily life and are the meaningful events, common chores, and the work associated with living. Routines are appropriate for embedding intervention because they provide a context in which the family is being a family first and a support to their child’s special needs second. Instead of scheduling the family activities around the child’s therapy sessions and at home lessons, in a routines based approach, the family activities become the child’s therapy and practice. This paradigm shift changes many of the roles and common practices for early interventionists. This workshop will present strategies that service providers can use to enhance the family role during the assessment process as a foundation for their active participation in assessment and intervention. Developing routines with the family that are flexible and dynamic and yet intentionally embed intervention to promote maximum child learning will be illustrated with video examples. The use of adult learning principles and problem solving practices will be discussed and modeled throughout the training to increase the familiarity of the participants’ knowledge and application of these theories to enhance the involvement of diverse caregivers. Finally, a model of consultation that focuses on the interaction between the caregiver and the child will be illustrated for use in routine based assessment and interventions.
