CS 505 - Team Building and Collaborative Decision Making: Parents and Professionals

The purpose of this course is to provide the communication skills required for those engaged in reciprocal relationships with families. Family centered practices, the provision of resources and supports to parents and families, and the inclusion of jointly developed family identified outcomes will be addressed in ways that are responsive to cultural, linguistic and other family characteristics. The components of team building will be practiced in classroom simulations. Students will explore their own strengths and challenges by engaging in self-assessment procedures, reflection and critiques. All of the knowledge base will be addressed in the context of legislation related to providing Infant/Toddler Early Childhood Educational Services.
