Recorded Learning Series Part 1: Overview of Adult Learning and its Application to Parent Coaching
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) will offer a three-part learning series titled, Providing Remote Instruction for Preschoolers with Disabilities: Coaching Parents and Building Partnerships. It is targeted to early childhood and early childhood special education teachers, but is also appropriate for administrators, related service personnel, and anyone else who may partner with families and implement coaching strategies to support learning. The series will be led by Dana Childress, Ph.D., Early Intervention Professional Development Consultant. It will focus on the Dathan Rush and M'Lisa Shelden coaching model. The goals are for participants to 1) gain an understanding of the purpose and value of coaching parents, 2) increase knowledge of the Rush and Shelden coaching model, and 3) implement the key characteristics of the coaching model. Participants will be encouraged to complete readings and activities throughout the series that are designed to enhance learning and improve implementation.
