Effective Practice events and courses are training activities that support guided practice and exploration, facilitated interaction, and personal planning for early intervention service personnel. Activities may be face-to-face, online (webinars and asynchronous courses), or a hybrid of face-to-face and online. As with all Early Start training, content is developed with field practitioners, managers, and family partners.
Effective Practice special topic training sessions offer timely content, innovative tools, and strategies appropriate for experienced Early Start providers, service coordinators, managers, supervisors, and family support personnel. Activities might include live trainings, webinars, and self-paced open access courses, conducted as needed to offer “just-in-time” communication to the field on issues critical to Early Start implementation. Special and critical topic webinars are conducted in real time and archived for later access.
