CS 560 - Advanced Service Seminar

This course is provided for students who have three or more years of teaching experience in the areas of infant/toddler early childhood special education. During the semester experience, students will explore in depth current theoretical and methodological issues and problems: social, political and cultural, as they relate to families and children receiving services in Infant/Toddler Early Childhood programs. As a way of contributing new information and expertise to the program where they are currently employed, students will conduct a needs assessment and design a staff development program for any level of staff or parents. The curricula for this staff development program would be developed from recently acquired knowledge gained in the graduate program. Skills would include: designing and conducting the needs assessment, implementing the principles of teaching and learning, the selection of appropriate instructional materials, utilization of effective communication skills and the principles of protocol and ethics. The instructional event would be designed for adult learners.
