Talking with Families about Developmental Screenings and Concern

Talking with Families about Developmental Screenings and Concern

March 20, 2024 60 minutes

Conversations about developmental screening results and concerns can be time-consuming and anxiety-provoking for families and for family-facing providers. Yet the benefits are clear: when families and their child’s providers have productive conversations about a child’s development, they are better equipped to work as a team to co-create and follow through on a collaborative plan that supports the best outcomes for the child. The Development is a Journey Conversation Roadmap was created to simplify, support, and strengthen these important and often challenging conversations. The Roadmap is designed to facilitate these conversations with seven short and simple steps to actively engage parents and other caregivers in planning for their child’s developmental needs, and enhance the provider-parent partnership, especially when parents and providers find themselves having different perspectives about the child and the possible challenge. This webinar will introduce participants to this strengths-based, relationally-focused, family-centered tool and process for engaging families and providers in collaborative partnership to address developmental challenges in service of best outcomes for children and their caregivers. Come learn and practice together implementing this way of understanding and supporting the developmental screening process!
