Early Intervention (EI) focuses on the active participation of families in the EI process by engaging caregivers in the planning and implementation of services provided to the child. This requires a collaborative partnership between early childhood professionals and families where equal participation by all those involved is highly encouraged. Collaboration is ongoing among all the family and other team members to provide culturally relevant and comprehensive services to best support family priorities, changing circumstances, and transitions. Although there might be obstacles, it means ensuring that the family has all the information and tools necessary to make educated decisions that will help the child successfully reach early intervention outcomes.

Just like last week, you will assume the role of a social media influencer to showcase your knowledge related to key early intervention topics. Last week, you created either an image to represent your content along with a written narrative or a video post. And like last week, you are encouraged to not only post your information in the discussion forum but to also share it to your social media platform of choice and to share your social media handle in your discussion forum post. Doing this will allow you to demonstrate your understanding of the content and build connections with others in the field.

Select one of the options below to complete your discussion post.

  • Option 1
    • Create an image with a supporting written narrative.
  • Option 2
    • Create a two-minute video.

Whichever media option you choose, your initial post must include the following:

  • Discuss your role as an educator during the early intervention process.
  • Describe three strategies you will use to collaborate with families during the early intervention process.
  • Explain one barrier that might arise in collaborating with families during the early intervention process and how you can support families to overcome it.

Upload your image with supporting written narrative or video to the discussion forum. If you shared your image or video to a social media platform, share your social media handle in your post so we can follow you!
