TLL 2507 - EARLY INTERVENTION CONSULTATION
This module focuses on providing students with skills for consulting with families, childcare providers, related service personnel, other teachers and paraprofessionals, to assist them in carrying out interventions for young children with autism, in homes, inclusive classrooms, and the community. The class will place special emphasis on classroom-based services. The module emphasizes a collaborative approach to consultation. Communication and interpersonal skills, relationship-building, the inclusion of families in all consultations, and techniques for assisting others to carry out interventions are considered. Finally issues related to interagency collaborations with emphasis on strategies to overcome challenges that occur in the daily life of a consulting professional in a variety of settings will be investigated.
