Course Description

The roles and responsibilities of SLPs, OTs, PTs, educators, and administrators have changed greatly over the last several decades. Evolution will continue as our understanding of the needs of children with disabilities expands; as the impact of impairments on learning performance is more clearly defined; and as methods for delivering intervention services improve. While school-based SLPs, OTs, PTs, and BCBAs still function as specialists, we can no longer implement our programs in isolation from the rest of the education system. Our intervention services must be effective and an integral part of the total educational program for students with disabilities. This webinar discussion brings a fresh approach to thinking about school-based intervention services. Ten critical signs (characteristics) of quality and effective service delivery programs are defined and briefly discussed. Participants are invited to consider each characteristic from the perspective of their own discipline, role, school organization, population, goals, and service delivery program. Join us and take your first step by forming an action plan for analyzing and strengthening your own program.

Learning Objectives

Participants will be able to :

  • Define 10 characteristics of effective, school-based intervention services.
  • Identify the strength of those characteristics in their own program.
  • Create an action plan for building a quality program.

Target Audience

  • Physical Therapists/ Physical Therapy Assistants, Occupational Therapists/ Occupational Therapy Assistants, Speech Therapists/ Speech Therapy Assistants, Special education teachers/Education Specialists, Psychologists/Mental Health Professionals, Behavioral Therapists/Behavioral Professionals, Administrators

Bernice

It was perfect. Dawn was engaging. She gave relevant information and examples. I would have liked a few more examples of therapy materials and ideas that might be used.

Dawn

The presenter was engaging and informative. Could always use more Q&A. I had fun and am glad I did it

Deborah

Excellent, engaging, knowledgeable speaker, clear, etc. Maybe spending less time on the checklists to prepare and more. I would have liked to see examples of therapy (videos), more time on actual therapy and therapy ideas, small group breakout session so that we could discuss our experiences and help each other out, networking with other teletherapists. Liked the platform used, very clear presentation, excellent, thank you

The program was very detailed and discussed scenarios that we may come across in the field. I did not observe any weaknesses in the program. Any questions I had before the program were answered. I really appreciate the work that was put into this program to better prepare us when providing services during virtual sessions.

Dawn was very encouraging and promoted out of the box thinking. Too much time dedicated to virtual set-up vs. therapy with telepractice.

More insights on materials and resources that were completely new. Understanding certain areas of tele practices and modifications to be made in the learning part. Very interesting and looking forward to many such webinars that address tele rehabilitation area.

Cohesive and relevant information. Again, I enjoyed the presentation and thought the information was helpful.

The detailed slides. It was a little long so I found it hard to focus the entire time. I think it being more straight to the point would help.

Great checklists. Would love to see examples of teletherapy sessions. Thank you!

Loved the cultural humility aspect and the checklist resources. I wish we would have seen a specific example of a session played. More examples of activities in sessions with parent vs one on one with a child. It was good overall. The presenter was very knowledgable with tons of experience.

Addressed diversity and meeting families where they are but not enough concrete examples
