SLPs who work in preschool and K-12 school settings engage in interprofessional collaboration since they regularly partner with other professionals – teachers, assistants, school psychologists, occupational therapists, and others – to deliver services to students. In some cases, SLPs may find that these collaboration efforts could be enhanced. In this webinar, speaker Jean Blosser presents a fresh approach to planning and offering integrated, classroom-based services. The approach allows school clinicians to transform their programs by strengthening their relationships with fellow school professionals and improving the breadth, depth, and quality of collaboration that is already happening.
The course describes a unique, six-stage collaboration process that fosters a common frame of reference and meaningful relationships with education colleagues. Each stage incorporates a goal, ready-to-implement strategies, and interactive tools and resources SLPs can employ to encourage buy-in and engagement. Throughout the webinar, participants are guided to think about the process from the perspective of their own role, organization, school culture, school partners, student population, services, and goals. Participants will create an action plan for reframing their own programs.
You will be able to:
- engage teammates in interprofessional education and practice
- explain the value and benefits of expanding service delivery to include classroom-based, inclusive, and integrated formats
- launch an individualized action plan to employ the six-stage collaboration process throughout the school year
