Think about when you started in this field

  • Less than two years

  • Five years

  • Ten - 15 years

  • 20 years

  • What were the words used to describe (theme, trends) for working with young children?

  • National workgroup convened and developed

    • Documents (Mission & 7 key principles, Looks Like Doesn’t Look Like and Practices)

    • Disseminated & widely used

  • More was wanted on actual practices

Principles

“At a Glance”

One page for each principle. Organized by:

  • Children

  • Families

  • Communities


Key principle 1

Infants and toddlers learn best through

everyday experiences and interaction

with familiar people in familiar contexts.

8. …bring a well-equipped toy bag into the home for each visit.

Key Principle #1


Lynda cook pletcher 14 th national early childhood inclusion institute may 21 st 2014

Understand children’s interests

Support their engagement & participation

Reach mastery & scaffold new abilities

Encourage practice to achieve competence


Consider this

Consider This

The provider shares toys. “I noticed you didn’t have many toys to play with. Here are some you can use. Oh you can keep them it’s okay.”

What does this do for the family?


Some unintended consequences might be

Some UnintendedConsequences might be:

  • Undermines the parent’s sense of competence & control.

  • Lessens the parent’s self-esteem.

  • Makes it appear that the visitor's toys are better than the family’s.

  • Reinforces negative feelings of self.


Lynda cook pletcher 14 th national early childhood inclusion institute may 21 st 2014

  • How to help…

  • Ask “Would you like me to look around with you and see what we can find that would be fun for Johnny to play with?”

  • Look for objects in the house that may not be obvious toys like plastic bowls, pots, pans, and a wooden spoon, or boxes and use those during the visit.

  • If family has mentioned wanting more toys better suited for child’s age, share ideas of yard sales, or toy exchanges with other friends or family members.


Key principle 2

All families, with the necessary supports and resources, can enhance their children’s learning and development.

5. …assume that certain types of families need more help based on family circumstances or a child’s type of disability

Key Principle #2


Lynda cook pletcher 14 th national early childhood inclusion institute may 21 st 2014

This is because (choose ALL that apply)

  • ALL families have strengths and capabilities to help their child not just certain kinds of families.

  • Services are determined based upon the family’s functional outcomes versus child’s disability.

  • More services are better for more involved children to make progress.

  • Families have networks of informal and formal sources of support that meet many child and family needs.

  • Parents don’t understand child development and what the child needs.

Poll


Consider this1

Consider This

The provider continues to drive the family to the doctor’s office for their regular visits, because they don’t have a car.

What does this do for the family?


Some unintended consequences might be1

Some Unintended Consequences Might be:

  • Fosters dependence on the help-giver.

  • Results in the family becoming a passive receiver of help.

  • Reinforces non-productive behaviors.

  • Creates a great sense of indebtedness.


Lynda cook pletcher 14 th national early childhood inclusion institute may 21 st 2014

  • Howto help…

  • Help the family research other sources of transportation including public buses and non-profit options that offer rides to appointments.

  • Discuss asking a friend or other family member AND offer to do something for them in exchange for the ride.


Because

Because

  • Review the At- a- Glance on page 41

  • Look again at pages 13- 20 foundational pillar- Family Centered Practices

  • Think again about your agreement and your team’s agreement with principles 2, 3, 4, 5


Lynda cook pletcher 14 th national early childhood inclusion institute may 21 st 2014

    • Students – pre-service

    • Practicing providers

    • Families

    • System administrators

    • Community

    • Other
