Talks on Tuesdays Webinar Series
November & December Talks on Tuesdays Webinar
Title: THE DECISION TREE: A Tool for Teaming and Family Engagement - PARTS I & II
Presenters: Kyla Patterson and Lisa Terry
Date: November 6, 2018
Time: Noon - 1:00 p.m. EST
Description: In Virginia, assessment teams are required to use the Decision Tree at entry, annual IFSP and exit to determine the child outcome summary statement that represents a child's functioning in each of the child outcome areas. Are you wondering how the decision tree can help your team? Join us for this 2-part interactive webinar series to get answers.
Part 1 (November) of the series will encourage participants to consider how the Decision Tree can support a consistent thinking, discussion and decision-making process for comparing a child's functioning in the three outcome areas to that of same age peers. Teaming and family engagement in that process will be emphasized with concrete, practical examples based on one local system's use of the decision tree to improve these aspects of their team assessment and child outcome summary processes.
Part 2 (December) of the series will give participants the opportunity to increase their skills and confidence in using the Decision Tree through scenario-based practice with the Decision Tree and discussion around common questions associated with the use of it.
