This course looks at family-centered principles as a set of core beliefs and attitudes that shape the philosophy and practices of Early Intervention programs. Participants will have opportunities to explore Ecological and Family Systems Theories as frameworks for increasing the focus on families in Early Intervention. They will have the opportunity to reflect on the developmental process of becoming culturally competent; explore the diverse cultures, values and beliefs of the families with whom they work; and identify strategies they can use to improve their professional skills and demonstrate understanding, respect and empathy in their interactions with families.
