How Best to Use Professionals Who Visit the Classroom

Conference Year: 

2016

Primary Speaker name: 

In some places, therapists, early interventionists, itinerant early childhood special education (ECSE) teachers, and other consultants take the child out of the classroom to receive services. This session, designed for early childhood and ECSE teachers, practitioners, specialists and therapists, is about setting up a structure to make the most of visits by specialists to the classroom. It features checklists for those visitors and for the classroom staff. The purpose of the visits should be to enhance the ability of the classroom staff to provide routines-based interventions when the specialists aren’t there, and this session will provide strategies for both classroom teachers and specialists.
