School Recommendations: The Importance of Contextual Fit

Event Closed

More Details

Observations and/or psycho-educational evaluations are often reported and shared with parents and teachers. It is important that any recommendations made requiring follow-up are within the repertoires of both parents and teachers to implement successfully with fidelity. In this session, we will focus on school recommendations and discuss some positive evidence-based strategies and how to judge the best contextual fit. Additionally, we will talk about how this will nurture positive working relationships with schools and school management teams.
