Are you challenged by your complex and diverse workload and caseload? Have you heard about a range of service delivery models such as integrated, diagnostic intervention, classroom-based, 3:1, RTI, collaboration, and others but are unsure of how or when to implement them in your program? Do you have questions about dosage (type, frequency, amount and duration of services) to provide for each student? If your answer to either of these questions is yes, you will enjoy this inter-professional workshop as we explore strategies and tools to help you meet the service delivery challenges you face each day.
Sweeping changes in schools create a need for school-based SLPs, OTs, PTs, and Special Educators to re-cast the way we provide services. In a nutshell, the major service delivery challenge we face is matching each student with the right service delivery model, the right providers, and the right evidence-based interventions.
Service delivery decisions may be influenced by personnel shortages; burgeoning requests for services for difficult populations, changes in our roles and responsibilities, core curriculum and IDEA requirements, parent and teacher expectations, complex scheduling demands, and litigation. The most important driving issue is the expectation that we achieve positive outcomes and that our services help student achieve their highest potential.
This workshop presents concrete strategies and practical tools for delivering therapy and special education services. Attendees will focus on their own unique challenges as we engage in lively discussions, share success stories, and open our Service Delivery Treasure Chest full of gems designed to ensure that services are effective, efficient, evidence-based, and prepare students for school success.
After participating in this workshop, attendees will be able to:
- Describe a range of service delivery options and important aspects to consider.
- Match students with the most appropriate service delivery model to meet their needs and achieve positive outcomes.
- Explain service delivery options to parents and teachers to foster buy-in and engagement.
- Use tools to collaborate with education team members and facilitate high quality, educationally relevant services.
