Course #: W375
Time: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Credit Available: 1 CEU; 10 SWCEUs; Approved by Illinois Early Intervention Training Program for 10 contact hours in the area of Assessment
In this two-day session, participants will learn to administer the Infant-Toddler Developmental Assessment (IDA), an approved Early Intervention tool in the state of Illinois, as well as in many other states. Participants will be introduced to the IDA’s strong philosophical and theoretical base that supports and promotes best practices in early intervention developmental assessment.
The IDA is more than simply a test of a young child’s development. The IDA is a series of phases that (when synthesized together) help to create a full picture of a child in the context of family, health, and developmental variables, and seeks to embrace the complexity of a child’s development.
Participants will learn the six phases of the IDA with emphasis on learning to conduct the Provence Profile, which is the developmental assessment phase of the IDA. This popular workshop often inspires lively discussion regarding early intervention systems, best practices, and other topics and issues currently debated in the field of early intervention.
Whether you’re responsible for assessment or intervention delivery, theis two-day session will enhance your practice. Come and join the conversation!
