LIVE Coach-the-Coach E.I. Practice with Stacey Landberg, M.S., CCC-SLP

Friday, October 16, 2020 | 12:30pm - 1:30pm
Water Can

This event will feature LIVE coach-the-coach practice. Together we will practice coaching strategies (e.g. problem-solving, reflection, observation, feedback, etc.) while we watch segments from a recent mobile coaching visit between another family and another home-visitor. This is a unique opportunity to support an EI colleague as we coach them live through this video self-modeling process. Video modeling is an evidence-based way to learn from our peers and strengthen our own coaching and routines-based-intervention skills. This is the second coaching event in a series of ongoing monthly coaching/RBI live zoom events.
