Personalized Professional Development for Early Intervention Professionals

Early interventional providers seek professional development (PD) opportunities that meet their unique needs. Part C agencies, schools, and other entities who provide PD are often responsible for the PD of a broad range of learners from very diverse backgrounds and skills and aren’t always able to meet the specific needs of early intervention providers. In this session we will talk about how one state is adopting Personalized Professional Development (PPD) Planning to help early intervention professionals take control of their learning and apply their learning in their work with families and young children. We will discuss how Appendix 1, Knowledge and Skills of the Early Intervention (EI) Provider, from the Supplement to JCIH 2007 Position Statement (2013), can be used to provide a foundation for PPD Planning for early intervention professionals. We will explore options for using personalized learning strategies to meet their individual goals, interests, and styles. We will also discuss how personalized learning meets the needs of adult learners.

  • The learner will learn about the benefits of personalized professional development (PPD) and discover how PPD planning can be used to meet the adult learning needs of early intervention providers.
  • The learner will explore options for using innovative and embedded learning opportunities to address their individual goals, interests, and styles of learning.
  • The learner will discuss applying learning on the job and using reflection as a part of the learning process.
