Building Capacity with a Multidisciplinary Approach
School Readiness Funding gives us the ability to build the capacity of educators and services to better prepare children for their journey in education.
It paves the way for a multi-disciplinary approach, integrating different parts of the industry and sector and allowing services to better cater to the specific needs of families in their communities.
In this seminar, we explore the merging of the clinical and teaching paradigms, resulting in a multidisciplinary approach to School Readiness.
Join Teigan Leonard, Psychologist and ECI Manager, for a deep dive into the practicalities of setting up effective multidisciplinary teams; where allied health practitioners (which may comprise of speech pathologists, psychologists and occupational therapists) work directly with early childhood educators, as well as the children and families requiring the support.
Understand the differences and benefits of capacity building for educators versus direct intervention for the child
Explore what a multidisciplinary team looks like and learn how to build an effective team
Learn about the common areas educators have found most useful for capacity building
Hear real-life examples of challenges faced by educators.
