About This Webinar:

Triadic strategies focus on the interactions between three individuals: the child, caregiver, and EI/EC professional. These strategies help us think about what we do, what caregivers do, and what we do together. Triadic strategies recognize and strengthen caregiver and child competence, confidence, and mutual enjoyment. Part 1 of this two-part series will provide an overview of the triadic strategies which include: 1) arranging the environment to increase the probability of enjoyable caregiver child interactions; 2) affirming parenting competence; 3) focusing attention; 4) providing developmental information; 5) modeling; and 6) suggesting. Each strategy will be explained with examples given across roles and settings.
