Description:

This workshop is designed for anyone who works in the Early Intervention (EI) system: those new to EI and seasoned professionals, those primarily responsible for service coordination to service provision. Participants will focus on two interrelated aspects of our work: the development of functional outcomes and the Primary Provider Service Delivery Model.  Building on an evidence-based foundation, participants will learn the guiding principles of functional outcome development, specifically focusing on development of transdisciplinary outcomes.  Participants will be introduced to the philosophy and principles of best practice related to the Primary Provider Service Delivery Model, and will dissect and discuss terms and concepts such as, “transdisciplinary”, “coaching”, “natural environments” and “self-reflection”.  Change is not always easy or even welcomed; heartfelt debates and impassioned discussions are expected and will even be encouraged.
