Learn To Talk Around The Clock at Childcare, Supplemental Question & Bracelet Packs

As a cost-saving measure, a childcare facility can purchase 1 Basic Kit for 4  childcare teachers/providers to share, but each of these 4 teachers will need a Supplemental Question for their own use to complete the self-assessment.  This comes with a Bracelet Pack for each of the Supplemental Question booklets for each of them to wear as a reminder of which level of practice they are beginning and as they continue through the levels of the program.  

I Promise to Be A Good Parent

Based on 10 Promises, the family is encouraged to spend more time at home enjoying everyday routines with their children.  Even simple routines can be important to a child for building strong relationships, listening and spoken language.    

Language Development Knowledge Cards, 52 Ways to Talk to Young Children

Time.  Unfortunately we never seem to have enough time.  We need time to plan, time to attend staff meetings, time to enter data into a data collection system, time to arrange schedules, and time to travel to earn valued and required inservice hours.  Karen K Rossi presents classes teachers can take at their own pace any time that is convenient to him or her.  I am going to be presenting information in bite-sized,  20-minute chunks.  You can choose to take one chunk at a time, or all at once.  It's up to you!

​Class OL1.  Introduction to a Routines-Based, Coaching, Early Intervention Program based on  Learn To Talk Around The Clock, Professional's Early Intervention Toolbox®.  One Toolbox is included in the tuition and will be shipped ahead of class (if enrollment is completed in time.)

For Class OL1, there will be FOUR (4) 20-minute chunks, or 80 minutes. 
1.  Routines-based Early Intervention 
2.  Signature Behavior Checklist for Parents/Family members/Childcare
3.  How to Coach a Parent
4.  Reflection:  Use of objectives you have for the child & family      
Based on many, many years of experience working with families, Karen Rossi poured her knowledge and heart into the Learn To Talk Around The Clock, Professional's Early Intervention Toolbox©.  These entirely routines-based themes have withstood the test of time, and take families from mealtime, to getting dressed, to playtime, on-the-go, and eight more themes.  The Toolbox was also developed to help teachers save time.  Everything they need for planning routines with families is in one box.  In this online learning course, teachers learn to determine how parents are communicating with their child through the use of the Signature Behavior Checklist.  The coaching method will be introduced and explained as an approach to helping parents practice daily routines with their children, adding in new techniques as other are mastered.  Many other "how to's" of providing early intervention to children who are deaf or hard of hearing or with language delay will be included in this Online Learning Opportunity. 
             Administrators can choose to enroll their entire staff in this learning opportunity and further discuss the topics in staff meetings.  Furthermore, administrators can lead staff in determining the best and most effective ways to implement routines-based services in their school's or district's system of Early Intervention.
