Providing Distance Family Support: What do I say? How can I help? A Conversation with NCPMI Faculty
Have you asked yourself: Are you providing early intervention or preschool services using distance technology? Do you have questions about how you can support families as they help their children with learning activities or conducting intervention within routines? During a pre-recorded webinar the National Center for Pyramid Model Innovations (NCPMI) faculty address these questions and challenges related to assisting families. They share ideas on checking in with families, how to respond to difficult questions, and resources that might be shared.
Supporting Families with PBIS at Home
Families and caregivers should consider using positive behavioral interventions and supports (PBIS) in their homes on a daily basis. It is especially helpful when events disrupt normal routines – events like worldwide health pandemics. This practice brief provides recommendations for families and caregivers on how to use PBIS to continue to support their students’ social and emotional growth and minimize behavioral disruptions in the home.
The principal activity of the OSEP IDEAs That Work website is to provide information to grantees and access to a wide range of evidence-based products, publications, and resources to assist IDEA stakeholders including states, local district personnel, families to improve outcomes for children with disabilities.
