Mentoring & Teaching to Empower Parents in School-Based SLP Programs
presented by Jean Blosser

This course encourages therapists to nurture parents as active contributors and partners in their child’s intervention and instruction. It highlights how to employ mentoring methods to foster a high level of engagement. Empowering parents starts by exchanging critical information and jointly defining goals. Doors are then open for teaching parents to use specific intervention techniques and procedures. When parents gain new insights and skills, they become real partners in the treatment process. Examples are provided for identifying specific techniques parents can use. Recommendations are also made for dealing with challenges such as limited time and potentially adversarial situations. Throughout the discussion you will be encouraged to reflect on your own students, colleagues, and program. Learn more
