In this 90-minute webinar you will be guided through the process of taking observations that will assist you in planning for the inclusion of a child or children with disabilities or developmental delay within your early childhood service. An overview of the planning cycle will be provided, along with an overview of different types of observations and their purposes. Case studies will demonstrate how different types of data collection can be used to inform planning.
At the conclusion of this webinar, you will have the knowledge to:
* record objective observations to support conversations with families about their child’s development.
* record observations that demonstrate the level of educational supports required.
