During this 1.5 hour webinar, participants will learn about the Routines-Based Interview (RBI), which provides families with opportunities to tell their stories. Through the RBI process, professionals learn about a family’s typical day and help family members identify and enhance natural learning opportunities. Families use these learning opportunities to address their priorities for their child with special needs. Participants also will learn how to help family members build their resiliency. The RBI provides families the opportunity to tell their stories. Finally, participants will learn how to promote advocacy by facilitating discussions whereby families identify priorities on which they want to work.
In this 90-minute webinar participants will learn:
- How to use the Routines-Based Interview to support family strengths
- Strategies to help build resiliency in family members
- Ways to promote advocacy through identifying the priorities of the family through engaged discussions with a family
