Interventions for School-Age Students

This two-part training provides a deep dive into interventions for children with CVI, including those with deaf-blindness, looking at connection to assessment, daily routines, and the ECC with an emphasis on multidimensional intervention approaches.

Multidimensional Intervention Approaches: Connecting Interventions to ECC

This session will focus on examining ways to tie interventions to ECC learning areas using assessment outcomes. We’ll also discuss ways to develop interventions that complement and support student’s strengths while addressing areas of challenge through home-school partnerships and professional collaboration.

Objectives Connecting Intervention to ECC:

Participants will:

  1. List approaches for intervention within home and classroom activities or routines
  2. Explain how to address intervention needs based upon goals, supports and barriers to learning
  3. Identify approaches to strengthen the home-school partnership and collaboration among professionals


Multidimensional Intervention Approaches:  Building Skills and Motivation

This session will emphasize approaches to intervention that build visual skills, motivate student participation and enjoyment, and improve overall task performance for different ECC learning areas.

Objectives Building Skills and Motivation:

Participants will:

  1. Identify approaches for intervention within ECC learning areas
  2. Explain ways in which intervention approaches for children with CVI can improve overall task performance ECC learning areas
  3. Identify collaboration approaches that address learning skills in ECC areas for children who have CVI

Instructor: Elizabeth Hartmann, Amanda Lueck Ph.D.

Developmental Issues That May Affect Young Children Who Have CVI Including Those Who are Deaf-Blind: Recommended Practices to Intervention Approaches

This session focuses on serving young children with CVI including those who are deafblind. Recommended practices of the Division for Early Childhood of the Council for Exceptional Children that guide intervention approaches will be identified. It will discuss how CVI may affect social-emotional, communication, cognitive, and fine and gross motor development and related interventions.

Objectives Recommended Practices to Intervention Approaches:

Participants will:

  1. Identify recommended practices in early intervention/early childhood special education that provide a foundation for interventions described in the CVI Companion Guide
  2. List possible ways in which CVI may influence the development of young children.
  3. Identify specific ways to support early social-emotional, communication, cognitive, and fine and gross-motor development

 

Developmental Issues That May Affect Young Children Who Have CVI Including Those Who are Deaf-Blind: Routines-Based Intervention and the Team Model

This session focuses on the early intervention and early childhood special education team models and the roles of different disciplines. application of key intervention practices in home-based early intervention and in preschool classrooms. It will discuss the use of routines-based approaches and identify how to embed interventions and learning opportunities across daily routines.

Objectives Routines-Based Intervention and the Team Model:

Participants will:

  1. Identify team models in early intervention/early childhood special education used in their programs
  2. Identify the communication forms and functions assessed by the Communication Matrix.
  3. List benefits and challenges in using outcomes/objectives within routines matrices
