What do you do when you enter your children’s homes through a device? This session will focus on the partnership between families and classroom teachers (child care providers, Head Start teachers, preschool teachers) . Where do you begin? We will not be addressing how to teach children virtually, but rather how families and early intervention/preschool special education teachers can work together in individual calls via technology. We will discuss assessing child and family needs, developing a list of goals, supporting families with strategies to address those needs, addressing parenting basics, and providing emotional support. We hope for an exchange of ideas among participants.
