Have you heard the buzz about changes in IDEA Part C guidelines and a renewed focus on family centered care?
Not sure what it all means or how it applies to your clinical practice? While family centered care is not a new idea, actually implementing it in your visits with early intervention (EI) families may seem less than intuitive and challenging to accomplish. This workshop dispels the myths surrounding family centered care and will equip you with specific, concrete strategies for shifting your attention away from the child and toward the family as a whole.
