All Things Early Intervention blog is dedicated to supporting those in the field of early intervention, especially those who are special instructors, like me!
I am an Early Interventionist, a special instructor, a teacher, a service coordinator, a service provider, a team member. I work for the Early Intervention System in my state. This has me doing one of three things: playing on the floor with a baby, driving to the next house, catching up on an enormous amount of paperwork. Our family also has begun foster parenting young children with special needs. We have a life that is touched by early intervention in more than one way now that we have acted as parents to a child in the early intervention program.
Join me on my Early Intervention adventures in which all names and places have been changed to make it more interesting, less embarrassing and respect everyone’s privacy. However, it is true. Mostly.
Why All Things Early Intervention Blog?
I created this blog…to share information, be a support to other special instructors, challenge myself and to have fun!
Special Instruction is Unique
- The role of the special instructor is unique, but the resources and support are few and far between. Most of the resources on the internet for early intervention are focused toward classroom teachers, physical therapists, occupational therapists or speech therapists. I feel like I have something to offer that is unique to special instructors, also known as developmental therapists in some states.
Community of Early Intervention Providers
Much of the material geared toward special instructors could also benefit parents. In the future, I hope to offer a special “for parents” section as well.
I am always looking for new information to make myself better. Better at teaching children. Better at coaching parents. Better at understanding specific diagnoses. I welcome comments as long as they abide our comment policy. See our Terms and Conditions If you can’t say something nice, do not say anything at all. Just keep scrolling.
I look forward to sharing my joy and enthusiasm for the world of Early Intervention!
